MGM deposits director Allen into 'Banks 2'

As the result of a budgetary impasse, MGM has found another director for its sequel to Agent Cody Banks. Kevin Allen, who directed Warner Bros. Pictures' 1999 hairdressing comedy The Big Tease, is in final negotiations to come aboard to helm Agent Cody Banks 2. He is replacing Harald Zwart, who filmed the original and was on tap to handle the sequel. But Zwart stepped down during the weekend because of budgetary concerns. Banks 2 begins shooting next month in London, with Dylan Sellers and David Nicksay producing with Splendid Pictures and Maverick Films.
