Timur Bekmambetov Signed On To Direct HEATSEEKERS | FilmoFilia.
Russian director extraordinaire, who hasn’t always seemed to have his head wrapped completely around the 180 degree line, signs on to make the latest Michael Bay type thing. Airplane pirates.
Anyway, the otherwise profitable overseas director looks set to underwhelm domestic audiences with yet another one. All I wanted in Wanted was, well. Hmm. Nothing.
We’ll just have to wait and see if the combined Bay / Morgan producing team can make sure Mr. Bekmambetov can keep the camera on the right side of the line and the domestic haul in the black.
Can’t really see how they couldn’t. Those two know popcorn movies, if nothing else.
