Now that Akira is off the table, Albert Hughes has found his next project to direct without the aid of his exact double. Hughes will next direct Motor City, a revenge story that ended up on the 2009 Black List.
An offer has gone out to Chris Evans for the lead role of a wrongfully-imprisoned man who seeks revenge on those who framed him. There’s been no word on whether or not Evans has accepted but it sounds like a pretty sweet gig. It’s reported that the script only contains one line of dialogue. Granted, it’s a two-hour run-on sentence but still, that’s a fun challenge for any actor. (Twitch)
