Schreiber Defies

08.09.2007
Liev Schreiber and Jamie Bell have signed on to star in Ed Zwick's next film, DEFIANCE for Paramount Vantage. The film will based on Nechama Tec's book about a bunch of Jewish brothers (Daniel Craig, Schreiber and Bell) that are living in Nazi-occupied Poland, who escape into the Belarussian forest and join the Russian resistance fighters battling the Nazis. I wonder if the pool of ideas for movies about Nazis will ever be exhausted. Still, this sounds good - triumph of the human spirit kinda thing - and I really liked Jamie Bell in THE CHUMSCRUBBER. In case you're unaware, Zwick is the powerhouse director behind such movies as THE LAST SAMURAI and the more recent BLOOD DIAMOND. So yeah, the guy delivers.
Extra Tidbit: Actually, on second thought I might have enjoyed THE CHUMSCRUBBER because of Camilla Bell.

Zwick is a hack.

Probably one of the most overrated directors around.

The film equivalent to Paulo Coelho in literature.

"Deep and meaningful" artists for a generation that have never had to deal with real problems through their lifes.

Fleetwood is right about Zwick, and the Last Samurai was terrible. Historically inaccurate America bashing. It was Germany who modernized the Japanese military, not the evil U.S. I would think, as a German, Zwick would be aware of that. So, once again, Glory aside, I'm not much of a Zwick fan.

Powerhouse?

I can't disagree that Blood Diamond was an achievement, but I wouldn't necessarily call Ed Zwick a "Powerhouse" director. More akin to Micheal Bay, in that he swings for the fence at every try, without quite making it. The Siege, Courage Under Fire and Legends Of The Fall were all movie that tried too much to be huge frescos. I'd include Glory, but I like that one...
