With the films Crazy In Alabama and Summer Rain already on his directorial resume, he'll put his smoldering eye to the viewfinder of a sci-fi thriller. The film is called Solo, in which he will also star as a Spanish colonel who is suffering from post-traumatic stress. We're not sure how the sci-fi element comes into play. Perhaps it's aliens. Or robots. Or robot-aliens. Or sinus-suffering anthropomorphic bees. Or perhaps it's weaponized Mario Van Peebleses. (Variety)

‘Quantum Leap’ Will Make The Big Screen Jump http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/quantum-leap-will-make-the-big-screen-jump/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/quantum-leap-will-make-the-big-screen-jump/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Scott Bakula recently told a room full of nerds that a big screen version of "Quantum Leap" is in the works. Series creator Donald P. Bellisario is currently working on the script, which sadly will not star original stars Bakula and Dean Stockwell due to their age. Though, they are expected to appear in some kind of role. For those too young to remember and too busy to watch Syfy on weekdays between noon and six, "Quantum Leap" tells the story of a brilliant scientist whose consciousness "leaps" into different bodies throughout history, and must help them right a wrong before travelling on to the next, and hoping that his next leap will be the leap home. I'm pretty excited to see this. It may be our only chance of seeing Hugh Jackman singing back-up for Elvis while wearing a sequin gown. Well, in a non-Rob Marshall directed film, I mean. (Blastr)
