Paul Greengrass Will Direct CIA Thriller 'Agent Storm'

6 hours ago

On the heels of his critically-acclaimed true-story drama Captain Phillips, director Paul Greengrass is teaming up yet again with producer Scott Rudin and Sony Pictures for the adaptation Agent Storm, based on the upcoming book by Morten Storm, Paul Cruickshank and Tim Lister.

Here's the official description of the book, which will be published on September 2 by Atlantic Monthly Press.

"Morten Storm was an unlikely Jihadi. A six-foot-one red-haired Dane, Storm spent his teens in and out of trouble. A book about the Prophet Mohammed prompted his conversion to Islam, and Storm sought purpose in a community of believers. He attended a militant madrasah in Yemen, named his son Osama, and became close friends with Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-born terrorist cleric. But after a decade of Jihadi life, he not only repudiated extremism but, in a quest for atonement, became a double agent for the CIA and British and Danish intelligence. »

As many of you may know, director Quentin Tarantino's original version of Kill Bill was just one, extremely long film. The four-hour movie originally debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in 2003, before The Weinstein Company asked the filmmaker to cut it into Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Kill Bill Vol. 2.

9 Biggest Surprises of Comic-Con 2014

Some are still buzzing with energy, while others are a little sad that it's all over for another year. There are even those dour sourpusses who feel this year was nothing but lackluster. Even if that's the case, Comic-Con 2014 wasn't without its surprises. Maybe there weren't as many as in years past.

9 hours ago

Yesterday, director Quentin Tarantino confirmed at Comic-Con that he is moving forward with his Western The Hateful Eight, but the filmmaker also dropped a hint about another potential project, which would be his first sci-fi film.

During the Q&A session for his Django Unchained/Zorro comic book, a six-issue series slated to debut in November, Quentin Tarantino was asked if he would ever try to make a sci-fi movie, a genre he has never tackled before in his illustrious career. In response, the filmmaker said that he recently came up with an idea for a sci-fi movie, although it isn't clear when he may have time to write it.

With these films, I am trying to harken back to the original Star Wars... Christmas special. We do have Jefferson Starship!"

He's joking about the Star Wars: Holiday Special part, of course. He does tell fans where to start with the series if they haven't already seen it, and offers a sense of where he's coming at this material as a filmmaker.
