Stalked: Ang Lee's Woodstock, The Heretic, French Man on the Train remake

Ang Lee is going to be tackling a film about Woodstock...

The Heretic is about a fallen priest hitman...

The French film Man on the Train is getting remade...

Ang Lee will be adapting the book Taking Woodstock: A True Story of a Riot, a Concert, and a Life by Elliot Tiber and Tom Monte into the film entitled Taking Woodstock. The film will follow the life of a Greenwich Village interior designer who headed the Bethel Chamber of Commerce and issued the permit for the legendary 1969 Woodstock concert. The story comes from Yahoo News.

Javier Rodríguez's speculative script The Heretic has been bought and is on the fast track, and for good reason. The story sees a fallen priest turn into a hitman who is sent by a rogue Arch Bishop to assassinate his latest target, while doing so he begins to learn the truth about his latest target. The story from Variety.

Man on The Train, a 2002 French film starring Johnny Hallyday and Jean Rochefort and directed by Patrice LeConte which won Best Film and Actor at the Venice Film Festival is being remade in Hollywood. The story follows a drifter who arrives in a small town casing the local bank, he befriends a local professor and looks to inject some excitement into his life by roping him into the crime. Yahoo News reports that Billy Bob Thornton is eyeing the project and that Thomas Bezucha, director of The Family Stone, is in negotiations to helm.
