We already knew that Jesse Eisenberg had been tapped to play the “Doogie Howser of terrorism,” in The Terrorist Search Engine, but now the project has a writer and director in Oren Moverman, who previously pulled double duty on the acclaimed film The Messenger and the upcoming with the LAPD flick Rampart. Though the deal is right now just for his writing efforts, it’s largely thought that he will be the favorite to helm once the script is completed.

The Terrorist Search Engine tells the true story of Evan Kohlmann, who at the age of 23, was able to sift through massive amounts of data and turn up pertinent information, leading to the arrest of myriad radicals, culminating in ove 24 convictions.

Will Jesse Eisenberg be able to play such a cold, disaffected analyzing machine? Every role he’s had in the past points to “yes.”

Steve Buscemi Joins Sigourney Weaver in ‘Rampart’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/steve-buscemi-joins-sigourney-weaver-in-rampart/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/steve-buscemi-joins-sigourney-weaver-in-rampart/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Above: Steve Buscemi in the upcoming HBO series, "Boardwalk Empire." Rampart just got a whole lot sexier. Actor Steve Buscemi has joined the cast of the upcoming crime drama, which already includes Sigourney Weaver, Ice Cube, Woody Harrelson and Robin Wright. Buscemi, an obvious inspiration to Internet writers everywhere, will reportedly play the awesome ugly dude everybody likes even though he's ugly. The script for Rampart was written by Oren Moverman and novelist James Ellroy. Ellroy's involvement means that the film will be set in L.A., and will involve the LAPD, probably with a healthy dose of police corruption and racial slurs thrown in for good measure. Filming is set to begin in October. (Empire Online)
