David Twohy & F. Gary Gray to Work Together on a "Brazilian Job"

by | June 2, 2005 | Comments

When filmmaker David Twohy ("Pitch Black," "The Chronicles of Riddick") pitched his "Wrecking Crew" concept to some Paramount executives, he was hoping to write and direct the project. But Variety reports that the producers thought "Crew," with just a little tinkering, would work perfectly as a screenplay for "The Brazilian Job" – which, of course, would be the sequel to Paramount’s "Italian Job" remake.

One small glitch for Mr. Twohy is that the studio is already committed to director F. Gary Gray ("Be Cool" and the first "Job") on this project, so it’s just screenplay duty for Twohy this time around. But it’s not like the writer/director is suffering from a shortage of assignments: He also has "The Would-Be Warrior" cooking with Nickelodeon Films, and the sci-fi action flick "The Break" with Columbia Pictures.
