A more explode-y ‘Groundhog Day’.
How else would you describe his current sci-fi boner?
He’ll be playing a tiny little soldier. How cute!
It’s all about texting nowadays.
The moon will be a much sexier place if Doug Liman gets his way.
Does it even count as ‘narrowing down’ if there are still 8 names left?
The director is finally dusting off his sci-fi caper film, with the clever name “untitled ‘Moon’ project,” and is talking to Fox, Rosario Dawson, Andrew Garfield and many more.
Doug Liman will be direct a movie about a worldly operative that isn’t named “Bourne.”
Fair Game seems to take the trappings of the spy movies we love and apply them to the real life situation of Valerie Plame. That doesn’t make it feel any less like a standard docudrama though.
Doug Liman is officially on board to direct All You Need Is Kill, Empire Online is reporting. Based on the 2004 sci-fi novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, the film will follow the story of a soldier who is killed while fighting aliens, but finds himself caught in a time loop, reliving the events leading up to his death over and over again. With each subsequent death, the character improves his skills while attempting to break the cycle.
This really makes me mad. Warner Bros. acted like I was nuts when I pitched them my idea for a mash-up of Starship Troopers and Groundhog Day. They kept telling me things like "you're not authorized to be in here" and "put your pants back on." Well, we'll see who's crazy when they get a call from my lawyer, Robert Kardashian.
Here we have a trailer for the Fair Game that doesn't include a naked Cindy Crawford. Doug Liman's Fair Game tackles the true life story of Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson. The story goes as follows: Bush wanted to go to war, so his administration misappropriated information from Joe Wilson's report detailing why war wasn't necessary. Wilson wrote a New York Times editorial, explaining their deception, which sparked a huge controversy. As revenge, the administration outed Plame (Wilson's wife) as a CIA agent to the world. That's cold. You don't mess with a Congressman's boo like that.
In the film, Plame is played by Naomi Watts and Wilson is played by Sean Penn. So don't expect a bloody shoot-out in the Oval Office as the film's climax. You'll have to wait for the John Cena version for that.
