Summit Buys Untitled Action-Comedy from The Rock Writers About Two Men Who Reposess Airplanes

12 October 2011 5:54 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Summit bought an untitled action-comedy pitch today.  Variety was unable to uncover too many details, but the one detail that did surface is wonderfully unique: the story will track two repo men who repossess... airplanes!  The story was hatched by Douglas Cook and David Weisberg, the writing team behind The Rock---so how can you go wrong?  Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers: Dark of the Moon) and Jc Spink (The Hangover Part II) will produce. This is the second pitch Cook and Weisberg have sold to Summit in recent months alongside a "female ensemble actioner."  The duo also has Blank Slate set up at Bold Entertainment and Nick Rachett at Disney.  This busy slate comes over a decade after Cook and Weisberg's last credit, 1999's Double Jeopardy. »

Looking back at Michael Bay's The Rock

5 July 2011 8:16 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It stars Sean Connery, Nicolas Cage and an entire prison island full of great character actors. Ryan looks back at Michael Bay’s The Rock

By now, Michael Bay's latest giant robot opus, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon has assaulted cinemas with its chunky metal fists, and made a metric ton of money in the process. In its wake, like a shrieking Greek chorus, we've heard the usual derision that greets everything Bay makes.

The movie-watching world, therefore, appears to be separated into two sharply defined camps. On one side, we have the vocal group, who appear to think that Michael Bay is the antichrist with a steadycam rig, and on the other, a quieter faction, who keep paying money to go and watch his films.

Now, I'm not exactly a huge fan of Bay's movies, but then, I don't hate them, either. It's true that his films are never anything more than loud, »
