Ratner is Breaking up

08.27.2004

Is there a project in Hollywood that Brett Ratner isn't or wasn't at one time attached to direct? Ratner has been attached to everything from SUPERMAN to SAMURAI JACK to MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 3. Well now the director has a new project - the gambling adventure BREAKING VEGAS. Produced by Kevin Spacey the film follows the true tale of six MIT students who were schooled in the ways of card counting and took Vegas casinos for millions of dollars. In addition to producing, Spacey will likely star as the eccentric professor who taught the students the tricks of the trade. The film is based on Ben Mezrich's nonfiction bestseller "Bringing Down the House," but obviously that title could not be used because of the Steve Martin/Queen Latifah film. MGM, who originally wanted Ratner to direct BE COOL, is putting the project on the fasttrack, hoping it will be Ratner's next directorial project after JOSIAH'S CANON with Sean "You're The Man Now Dog" Connery for Fox. This November New Line will release Ratner's next directorial effort, AFTER THE SUNSET with Pierce Brosnan and Salma Hayek. New Line is also trying to get Ratner to commit to the final installment in the planned RUSH HOUR trilogy.
