Stalked: Columbus in Greek mythology, Schumacher's next and Judd Crossing Over

Joel Schumacher is off on a sprint. After Number 23 (Filmstalker review) he's set to direct Inland Saints written by Kurt Sutter who wrote for the excellent The Shield. The blurb sounds like a classic tale of forbidden love, and is pitched as a supernatural urban drama, whatever the hell that is. According to Variety through Rope of Silicon it's about teens who fall in love. He is the leader of a dangerous street gang and she is the daughter of the detective who is bringing down the gang.

Chris Columbus is being lined up to direct The Lightning Thief which is the first book in the Rick Riordan fantasy series Percy Jackson and the Olympians - yes, strange title, I thought that too. The story is about a boy who discovers that he's the descendant of a Greek god and then has to try and halt a battle between characters from Greek mythology. The story comes from Variety. A great way to get kids into Greek mythology, I loved that when I was younger...I still do!

Ashley Judd is in negotiations to join the immigration film Crossing Over and play an immigration defense attorney who is trying to arrange the adoption of a Nigerian girl...I was tempted to say to a big Hollywood star there, but that's just not true. She will join a big name cast list. The story comes from Variety.
