Rodriguez and Alba to make The Insiders?
Robert Rodriguez is fast becoming like Guillermo del Toro. He is signing up for a lot of projects, whilst actually filming very few.
The next project he may be getting involved in, is a film adaptation of The Insiders. Jessica Alba has acquired the screen rights, with Rodriguez in tow.
We heard recently that Robert Rodriguez should be filming Machete pretty soon. That is with The Jetsons, Sin City 2, Nerverackers and Predators already on the go. Now he could be adding another one to that list. Jessica Alba has reportedly acquired the screen rights to The Insiders, a graphic novel series, and it seems Robert Rodriguez is her partner in it.
Jean-Claude Bartoll and Renaud Garreta first created the series in 2002. The plot follows a Columbian woman working for the Whitehouse. She is tasked with infiltrating a large crime syndicate. There are seven volumes in total so far, with each one seemingly taking part in another country. The news comes from icv2, through /Film.
Sounds like Alba is trying to find a role for herself. And is hoping that Rodriguez can work some of his Sin City magic on it. Has anyone read the graphic novel series? Is it any good?
