Rob Cohen continues making movies, signs on to direct revenge thriller Bullet Run

06.24.2011

Director Rob Cohen's output has been relatively minimal these past five years or so. After the cinematic abortions that were THE MUMMY: TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPEROR and STEALTH, that's probably been for the best.

Today, Variety is reporting that Cohen has signed on to direct a new revenge thriller with the fabulously generic title BULLET RUN. The film, from a script by Andrew Hilton (THE LOST PATROL), is "centered on the head of an elite private protection team and his ex-CIA agent wife attempting to avenge their daughter's murder by infiltrating Iran to bring the killer to justice. When the operation to extract their target goes awry, they must battle through 200 miles and 20,000 bullets while keeping alive the one man they want to kill."

Cohen will continue developing the script and likely direct the film after he completes work on the James Patterson adaptation I, ALEX CROSS, which for some reason stars Tyler Perry in the title role.
Extra Tidbit: Early in his career, Cohen directed episodes of "Miami Vice".

Hack director

Anything this guy touches turns to crap, he wouldn't know good special effects if they bit him on the a$$. This guy should stop directing, no one likes your terrible style or even worse ideas...

Someone needs to tell this guy that his directing style and sensibilities died in the 90s...

I actually enjoyed The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. Should it have been called a Mummy movie? Probably not. Was Rachel Weisz missed? Definitely. Was it corny and over the top? You bet your ass! But that's part of it's charm. It's not like the other Mummy movies were 100% serious either, especially The Mummy Returns.

As for this news, the plot description doesn't sound like anything special but I'll wait until a trailer comes out to comment on it. Right now it hasn't even started

ok seriously leave the opinions to the article itself & not in the headlines, its starting to become annoying. Rob Cohen is not a bad director as he gave us Fast & the Furious, Dragon, Dragonheart & even XXX wasn't so bad
