Tim Burton needs a better dry cleaner.
Fearing retribution from Coolio Paul Greengrass has dropped out of James Cameron’s remake of Fantastic Voyage. Though Greengrass discloses that he was never actually on the project. He hadn’t signed anything, nor did he intend to. Although he won’t be sending Matt Damon on a trip through some dude’s bloodstream, he may be eyeing another tentpole adventure film.
Greengrass is reportedly interested in giving Treasure Island the Sherlock Holmes-treatment for producer Lionel Wigram. They’re working with the studio now to decide on a screenwriter but I don’t know why. A sexy version of Treasure Island has already been done. In fact I was watching it late last night on Cinemax with the volume off as to not wake Mother. (Deadline)
