Pierre Morel to celebrate BASTILLE DAY
Pierre Morel is one of those directors whose films I can't help but get excited for. I mean, the dude makes some of the most bad-ass films out there, like TAKEN. He gets really good performances out of his cast too, which is a really impressive feat when directing action movies.
Although we all still wish he were helming TAKEN 2, we can get excited for his next big film, BASTILLE DAY.
The film follows a down-and-out CIA agent and an artist who pair up to try and stop an attack on Paris. From the brief plot known, it sounds like a really nice fit for Morel. I could see it having a serious, TAKEN vibe, while not depending too much on the action. This film could be really interesting, especially if he puts the focus on the two main characters.
The film was written by Andrew Baldwin, who is currently working on the script for the refresh of LOGAN'S RUN. The pairing of Morel and Baldwin has me intrigued. What do you guys think?
