Paul W.S. Anderson to Helm "Spy Hunter"
According to Variety, Mr. Anderson (best known as the guy who directed "Resident Evil," "Alien vs. Predator," and "Event Horizon") will step in and direct "Spy Hunter" for Universal once he's finished with his remake of "Death Race 2000," also at Universal.
No word yet on whether or not Mr. Rock is still connected to the project. It's reported that Anderson will re-write the screenplay with a new partner -- even though the project's been written and re-written by the likes of Zak Penn, Stuart Beattie, Michael Brandt, and Derek Haas.
More on this slow-moving project when info becomes available ... but I bet that car's gonna look pretty neat.
