Aja does action?

Director Alexandre Aja certainly left his stamp on the horror genre with HAUTE TENSION, his HILLS HAVE EYES remake and the well-intentioned but clunky MIRRORS, but now he's turning his sights on some literal hired guns.

Aja will direct THE CONTRACTOR, a dramatic action-thriller that takes place "in a world where the U.S. government can no longer afford to fight wars and authorizes private contractors to send a band of elite soldiers on missions around the world."

I assume that "world" is largely the same as this one (do a Google search for "Blackwater," "shadow army" or "American mercenaries").

Aja isn't turning his back on horror just yet -- first he'll do the 3D PIRANHA pseudo-remake for Dimension.

Extra Tidbit: The project is presumably unrelated to the direct-to-DVD Wesley Snipes flick of the same title.

MIRRORS

I don't understand all those bad reviews for Mirrors, yeah a few things in the movie where stupide, like: check for the water it has your reflect in it .. But still the movie was one hell of a ride !

Certainly believe that whole contracting Blackwater thing is ripe for being exploited in action movies. But unless it's really one of the big movies coming out one weekend I imagine someone will see fit to rename it something a little less... What I guess I'm saying is, it could be a good title, but it isn't yet.
