Scott Waugh Circles Sci-Fi ‘Inversion’ (Exclusive)

5 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Scott Waugh (“Need for Speed”) is in final negotiations to direct the $120 million sci-fi action movie “Inversion.”

Inversion,” unveiled at Cannes by Mark Damon’s Foresight Unlimited, follows a young Chinese scientist and a street-smart American expat in a race against the clock across the globe to save Earth from an apocalyptic threat — a reversal of gravity causing civilizations to uproot and plummet into the sky. Bragi Schut and David Arata (“Children of Men”) are scripting.

Producers are Michael Nozik (“Syriana”), Markus Barmettler and Philip Lee (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”) with an April start date planned for production. Foresight Unlimited will continue sales at the American Film Market.

Waugh is a former stunt performer who appeared in “Spider-Man” and “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” and co-founded Bandito Brothers. He co-directed 2012’s “Act of Valor” with Mike McCoy and helmed “Need for Speed,” which grossed over $200 million this year.

Clint Eastwood Enlisting Some Real Navy SEALs For American Sniper With Bradley Cooper

20 March 2014 7:13 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When Scott Waugh and Mike McCoy's war-set thriller Act of Valor came out in 2012, it wasn't sold on big names or big budget action sequences, but instead the fact that it employed active Navy SEALs to play the lead roles. The film was ultimately dismissed by critics, but it's hard to argue that the strategy didn't work considering the $12 million project wound up pulling in over $80 million worldwide. It's possible that this success ended up having some kind of influence on Clint Eastwood, because The Wrap is now reporting that the veteran filmmaker has enlisted a few to star in his upcoming project American Sniper. Unlike Act of Valor, however, Eastwood's film will at least have some star-power to it. Bradley Cooper became attached to both star in and produce the movie all the way back in 2012. The Academy Award-nominee is set to be joined in the film by »

Act of Valor TV Series No Longer Happening

17 February 2014 9:45 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The National Geographic Channel announced today it is no longer moving forward with a scripted TV series based on the 2012 action film Act of Valor. Here's what the network had to say in a brief statement.

"Ngc is unfortunately not moving forward with Act of Valor in favor of other scripted projects we have under consideration that will be announced soon."

The series was first announced in September 2012, when Relativity Media and the Bandito Brothers production company revealed they were developing the movie for the small screen. National Geographic Channel gave the series a green light in October, although creative differences reportedly arose between Relativity and the Bandito Brothers.

The network had a formalized deal in place with Relativity, but the studio had no formal agreement with the Bandito Brothers. In the months that followed, the network, studio and production company all had differing ideas of how the show should be crafted. »
