Twohy waxes Brazilian

06.01.2005

David Twohy is one of the most talented guys in Hollywood - that's why it was so disappointing to not enjoy his last film THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK. I loved PITCH BLACK and thought BELOW and THE ARRIVAL were both really fun flicks as well (not to mention his writing credits that include THE FUGITIVE, GI JANE and others) and fully expected that RIDDICK would be all that and a side of fries. I'm still not sure what happened along the way that sent the project off-track. I didn't think any less of Twohy for it then and was already looking forward to his next projects. Onward and upward right? Now he's picking up where he left off with three new films on the way. At the top of that list is a gig writing the script for THE BRAZILIAN JOB, the sequel to 2002's THE ITALIAN JOB (hence the Charlize picture to the right). Twohy pitched a concept for an original heist film to Paramount who loved the idea and wanted to adapt it for the ITALIAN sequel. Twohy agreed and will write the script ceding directorial duties to F. Gary Gray who will return to direct the sequel. As a thank you, Paramount has hired Twohy to write and direct the adventure flick THE WOULD-BE WARRIOR for Nickelodeon Films. In Twohy's own words the film follows a "modern 15-year-old boy who gets caught in a centuries-old feud between Norse gods...It's good, crazy fun...but it pokes fun at other grandiose sword and sorcery epics."

Perhaps most interesting is another project he has set up titled THE BREAK. The sci-fi film would be an update of a long-in-development project called ALIEN PRISON. Twohy has laid out a new version of that film with producers Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher (GLADIATOR) about human escaping from aliens who have abducted them for experimental purposes. Twohy will first work on the BRAZILIAN script while developing both WARRIOR and BREAK. It's unclear yet which of those two films will go into production first. Stay tuned to JoBlo.com for more on all of these films...
