Veteran filmmaker John Badham is ready to get back on the feature saddle again. He’s in talks to take on In The Rough, written by Leslie Boehm (the man who’s given us Dante’s Peak, Daylight and The Darkest Hour). Rough is an action-adventure concerning a retired hunter, a female Red Cross employee and a CIA agent searching for priceless jewels in the Indian jungles. Adventure ensues [Moviehole].
Badham began his career in the early 70s directing television, both episodes and movies, until 1977, when he broke out as a film director with Saturday Night Fever. Since then he’s helmed a vast variety of entertainment, at least one of which you probably love. His films range from Short Circuit to WarGames to Stakeout to the Point Break-wannabee Drop Zone (which is a personal guilty pleasure).
