Wiseman's new Game

Last year, UNDERWORLD guy Len Wiseman was attached to a remake of ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and an adaptation of the videogame GEARS OF WAR. Both those pricey projects were at the now-crumpled New Line and neither will be entering reality anytime soon, so needless to say he's been making other plans.

Those plans include SHELL GAME, which is not a TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES sequel. The futuristic action flick involves "a detective who is faced with a moral dilemma as he investigates the dangerous black-market business of immortality."

Wiseman claims it's both a "passion project" and a "huge film", but the financial success of LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD has basically given him a blank -- or at least significant -- check for his budget. Personally I think Wiseman's style might be well suited for a sci-fi environment, where kinetic action and an excess of blue filters could be more fitting.

Extra Tidbit: Site policy dictates that all posted pictures of Wiseman must include his wife. Hey, that's what he gets for marrying Kate Beckinsale. There are worse problems to have.
