Sam Worthington and Bradley Cooper to Solve the Texas Killing Fields?

19 November 2009 9:13 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

It used to be that I thought Gerard Butler was attaching himself to way too many movies for his own good, and I made fun of him for it. Well guess what? Compared to Sam Worthington, Gerard Butler was an amateur. A scant day after Worthington was attached to the sci-fi “The Last Days of American Crime”, he’s now being rumored to be taking part in another movie — the based-on-true crime film “The Texas Killing Fields” with Bradley Cooper, who is himself on quite the roll after the mega success of “The Hangover”. Apparently the film gained notoriety when Danny Boyle mentioned it earlier this year as one of the scripts he was considering post-”Slumdog Millionaire”, but according to Boyle, the script was so dark and so fantastic that it would never get made unless you got together “half a dozen super megastars” for the studio to even consider footing the bill. »

Sam Worthington And Bradley Cooper Visiting The Killing Fields?

18 November 2009 10:34 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

You would think at this point that Danny Boyle has the ability to get pretty much anything made, no matter who stars in it. Dev Patel and Slumdog, anyone? But when he was talking up a potential upcoming project to MTV last spring, he said the script for The Texas Killing Fields was "really special," but "you.d have to have half a dozen super megastars for a studio to even consider making it." Now, apparently, there are two megastars attached, but Boyle is strangely no longer involved. According to Pajiba's insider source The Hollywood Cog, Bradley Cooper and Sam Worthington will likely play the two lead cop characters, and Michael Mann's daughter Ami, of all people, will be directing. They have no idea how the project came to the second-generation Mann, whose only significant directorial experience is as second-unit director on Heat, nor why Boyle bailed on it. »

Sam Worthington on for The Texas Killing Fields?

18 November 2009 12:41 AM, PST | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

Sam Worthington and Bradley Cooper might be lining up to star in The Texas Killing Fields. The film is taking a long time to get to the screen, no doubt partly due to its complex, dark subject matter, in which a couple of cops discover their latest case has a connection with the legendary Texas Killing Field incident. Four bodies were found in the same place between 1983 and 1991, with only two of them identified and all unsolved. Penned by a Texan police officer, the script has attracted the likes of Danny Boyle, who briefly...

Bradley Cooper and Sam Worthington Join Texas Killing Fields?

17 November 2009 4:29 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Way back in February after Danny Boyle took home the Academy Award for Best Director for his work on Slumdog Millionaire, the filmmaker was considering a whole slew of different projects to be his next. One that he mentioned, The Texas Killing Fields, is finally moving forward, but without Boyle attached, as Pajiba reveals they have inside info saying that Bradley Cooper and Sam Worthington are attached to the film that is being produced by Michael Mann who has apparently passed on directing responsibilities to his daughter Ami Mann. Sure, great, but when my dad gives me a movie it's usually just on DVD. The news is somewhat surprising considering Boyle thought the film just wasn't appealing to studios: "Texas Killing Fields was a fantastic script, really special script, but it was just so dark it would never get made. You’d have to have half a dozen super megastars »

Bradley Cooper and Sam Worthington to Frolic in The Texas Killing Fields

17 November 2009 2:45 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Back in February when he was fresh off his Oscar-win, Danny Boyle told MTV he was considering a project called The Texas Killing Fields, which was in no way related to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre but does speak to people’s fear of the Lone Star State and their decision not to mess with it.  The plot is mostly under wraps but it concerns two cops who discover that a recent murder in their jurisdiction is connected to the notorious “Killing Fields Murders.”

While Boyle ultimately decided not to do the film (he has since moved on to direct the survival tale 127 Hours), it has now moved into the hands of Ami Mann, daughter of Michael Mann (Heat), with Bradley Cooper and Sam Worthington attached to star.  Click the jump for more details.

Bradley Cooper and Sam Worthington to Revive The Texas Killing Fields?

17 November 2009 12:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

For the time being, treat this as a rumor report rather than reliable news. There was once a possible Danny Boyle project called The Texas Killing Fields, written by an ex-cop from Galveston, Texas. Boyle isn't making the film (he's making the Aron Ralston stroy 127 Hours instead) but there might be some new forward momentum on the film, thanks to the Michael Mann family and two recently-minted stars, Bradley Cooper and Sam Worthington. Pajiba reports that Michael Mann is producing the film for his daughter Ami Mann (not the singer Aimee Mann) to direct, and that Cooper and Worthington are now attached. The site, which I've read for some time as a source of entertaining criticism, has recently been breaking some news scoops, but aside from the news that Peter Berg was off Dune, many haven't yet been verified. So don't get too excited just yet; we'll see where »
