This epic naval adventure will be directed by Peter Berg of Friday Night Lights (et tu, Peter??) and will I guess be sort of like “The Hunt for Red October” if at some point Sean Connery were forced to swallow his professional pride and say “You sunk my battleship!”
Somehow, this is going to be a “Pirates of the Carribean”-style adventure movie. Producer Brad Fuller has extensive experience remaking horror movies like “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” So the good news is, he knows how to work in the absence of original ideas.
OK so obviously this is going to be a futuristic film directed by Ridley Scott. Of course! Every time I look at that thimble I think post-apocalyptic dystopia.
Unfortunately, somebody already made a super-creepy movie about a world made of candy. And then they remade it a couple years ago. So, this one is going to be a family comedy from the director of Enchanted. You guys, the next couple summers/Christmases are going to be tough. We’re going to need to stick together.
