Briefly: The mid-budget film Ten got off the ground today, getting around $30m of funding from QED and Norton Herrick so that Patrick Allesandrin (District 13: Ultimatum) can direct Bruce Willis, working from a script by Skip Woods. One interesting point here is that Allesandrin was until just recently set to direct Kane & Lynch, which is also meant to star Willis. Allesandrin walked, and last we heard Willis was still attached to the picture.
With the search for a new director still under way, Willis probably won’t have to worry about Kane & Lynch in the next few months. So, there’s Ten. We don’t have story details, but Deadline calls it a drama. That’s also interesting, given that Skip Woods is the guy with script credits on Swordfish, Hitman, Wolverine and The A-Team. Plenty of writers for big studio fare have their own more treasured scripts that fall outside genre territory. Maybe this is one of those. Ten shoots in December.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
