Jan de Bont‘s
on again/off again project
seems to be on again, as actress
is getting ready to film it. The action/thriller has a high concept that seems
to take Speed‘s bus
that couldn’t slow down to the next level.
Cusack and I play lovers and we go on a European vacation to Berlin," said
George. "She’s just a sassy one with long, dark hair so I’ve got to color my
hair again. And his daughter comes on holiday with us and I never knew he had a
daughter. She’s 16. We are fighting, fighting and fighting, and she gets
kidnapped. So John and I and this bad guy with the daughter gone in this 51
minute real time high speed chase in Berlin."
A veteran of TV’s
and action packed horror movies like
30 Days of Night,
George is prepared to serve the plot more than her own acting chops. "There
won’t be much dialog. A lot of driving. It’s just an action film. I really
wanted to do it. It’s just fun. I want to go to work and have fun."
So far, in preproduction, George has been game for anything
de Bont throws her way. "[I’ll do] everything, I imagine. Everything and
anything. I said, ‘No, no, I’m up for a challenge."
