by | April 17, 2006 | Comments

Danny Lerner, a top producer at NU Image films, has announced that Walter Hill in final negotiations to direct the fourth Rambo film. After first seeking out Ridley Scott and Richard Donner for the job (they both declined) producers decided to go with…

…a pair up of Jeb Stuart (Switchback) and Stuart Baird (US Marshals) to serve as co-directors.

Eventually, though, Stallone stepped in and took the job — unless a first class action director would happen to get involved. With the addition of Hill it is unknown if Stuart Baird … will remain on board with the film or if Hill will get his own men to serve as editor and assistant director.

As part of the contract, Hill will get an executive producer title and also gain a screenwriters credit since he is currently making small changes to the script. The film is expected to start this June buy may now be pushed back to late summer to the hiring of Hill.

(Walter Hill has directed such films as The Warriors, 48 HRS., Red Heat, Johnny Handsome, and Trespass.)
