Robert Luketic somehow still has a career; working on films with Liam Hemsworth and Zhang Ziyi

The term "hack" gets thrown around a lot, but only some are truly deserving of the title. While there are some who are falsely accused, like Michael Bay (who this writer will defend as an auteur, of sorts), sometimes the term just fits. There is one person who makes such innocuous films that he appears to have just slipped by anyone and everyone: Robert Luketic.

With films like LEGALLY BLONDE, MONSTER IN LAW, and the one-two Katherine Heigl face punch that was THE UGLY TRUTH and KILLERS, Luketic is a director who is both stylistically vapid, and yet has the ability to find stars despite his filmography. Even a name like Zhang Ziyi.

The director spoke to Australia’s The Daily Telegraph (via The Playlist), that he’s working on two new films, one starring Liam Hemsworth, and the other staring Ziyi - the latter being a revenge thriller.  We don’t know much about the Hemsworth project, but the Ziyi film looks to be quite intriguing. The idea of her starring in a revenge thriller is enthralling.  Hopefully these two can prove that Luketic is actually a respectable filmmaker.  Fingers crossed.
