Ayer's Last Man
David Ayer (HARSH TIMES) has signed on to write and direct LAST MAN for 20th Century Fox. In the movie, a hardened captain assigned to protect an outpost on a distant planet, must rally a selection of young American solders against an alien race. Ayer will commence work on the project once he is finished working on DEEP SEA COWBOYS, a thriller about a salvage crew trying to save a sinking Japanese cargo ship.
Maybe it's just me but this sounds a little like AVATAR, which would be pretty much the last thing you wanted to imitate. Early projections have the first weekend gross somewhere between sixty and seventy trillion dollars. More people will see that movie than have seen trees. If I'm wrong and it's totally different, then I'm all for it though. Ayer is cool in my book.
||Ayer's favorite movie is APOCALYPSE NOW.
