‘Driving Miss Daisy’ Guy Is Getting Dark

Tuesday, March 29 by

If you were a studio and you had a thriller in the pipeline called Killer Instinct, who would be your first choice? Well, if you guessed Bruce Beresford, director of the touching 1989 Oscar bait film Driving Miss Daisy, you’d be right. You’d be extremely prescient and oddly clairvoyant and I would be uncomfortable. Regardless of my personal feelings, the movie, which tells the story of a young salesman and retired special forces op who get together most likely to kill a bunch of things, will be produced by the fake-sounding-but-real Chockstone pictures, and will be rewritten by Beresford and original writer David Murray. No word yet if a quaintly stereotypical Morgan Freeman will be making an appearance, but we can cross our collective fingers for that. (Variety)
