Stalked: Robert Rodrigez, Halle Berry, Liev Schreiber, The Associate
Robert Rodriguez is heading to the future.
Halle Berry is a thief.
Liev Schreiber is helping Angelina Jolie.
And The Associate has a writer.
Robert Rodriguez's next film is to be the futuristic thriller Nerverackers. Set in 2085, it is set in a city where crime is non-existent. The main character works for a special unit, who are sent to stamp out a crime wave which has broken out. Release is scheduled for 2010, let's hope he's already on the case. The news is from Variety.
Halle Berry is trying to make people like her again, by playing a thief. According to MTV Movies Blog, she has agreed to play Doris Payne. Payne is a real life jewel thief, currently in jail for the second time. It seems Payne made quite a killing, stealing from stores like Neiman Marcus and Town and Country. Lots of money later, and a trip abroad to try her act elsewhere, she was jailed for a while. Seems the woman in question is quite chuffed and jovial about her career. Could this be Berry's comeback?
Angelina Jolie has some company on SALT. Having taken over the role from Tom Cruise, Jolie now has Liev Schreiber alongside her. Jolie plays a CIA operative accused of being a Russian spy. She then ends up on the run trying to prove her innocence, Schreiber will play her fellow CIA operative. The news is from Jo Blo.
William Monahan, who wrote The Departed, is to write the film adaptation of John Grisham's The Associate. Shia LaBeouf is already playing the newly graduated law student with a past, who ends up working on a large lawsuit for his new company. He finds himself open to manipulation and blackmail. This could turn into one of the better Grisham adaptations. The news is from First Showing.net.
