Danny Boyle to direct the same WWII miniseries that Michael Bay wants to bring to the big screen

In a funny chain of events, Danny Boyle is set to direct the very same WII thriller that Michael Bay just expressed an interest in directing.

However, Bay's dreams have not been trampled. Boyle is bringing the story to the small screen for FX. The director is teaming with his SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE and 127 HOURS writer-producer, Simon Beaufoy and Christian Colson.

In case you didn't read the Bay article, the true story is centered on, "British-trained Norwegian resistance fighters who sabotaged Hitlers nuclear development program during World War II."

Boyle said this of the mini-series titled TELEMARK, "This is one of the worlds greatest stories and we want to tell it on an epic scale."

The mini-series written by Beaufoy will take place in 10-parts. As happy as I am that Bay is doing stuff other than robots and boobies (though PAIN & GAIN had boobies and I liked that), I gotta admit this Boyle series sounds more appealing.

I said the Bay version would be shit, but I have faith in the Boyle version.

Not that it's the be-all and end-all, but one of these men has an Oscar...

We've had duelling movies about volcanoes, asteroids hitting the earth, ill-fated trips to Mars and blowing up the White House. Now witness a duelling movie and a miniseries about how a band of survivors and a young spy agency hunted down the world's most notorious Nazi!

I'm calling it, Boyle wins. The man's got style, talent, the right amount of eccentricity...he makes films that come together really nicely.

Danny Boyle is a power house. Love his work, and Bay might as well throw in the towel. Boyle is going to own this story. If Bay were smart, he would just produce and get Boyle to direct. That way they both win.

So, basically the same thing but with varying degrees of carnage.

Just kidding, Mr. Bay, you're aces too.
