Amongst a spattering of sci-fi thrillers, a few popular titles emerge, including Gran Turismo and a follow-up to the tremendously successful The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, a remake of the Swedish adaptation The Girl Who Played with Fire. Bust out an 80s keyboard and polish up your “Axel F” skills: Beverly Hills cop Axel Foley (aka Eddie Murphy) will return in a fourth installment of the franchise. And Tom Hanks is top dog in another Dan Brown thriller, Inferno. Ron Howard will direct.
Other script sales include:
– A biopic on the life of quarterback Kurt Warner (whose true story might be a lot more incredible than most think. . . )
– It’s about time: Artemis Fowl, coming soon. Robert De Niro to executive produce the Disney pic.
– Fox taking the wheel on a big-screen rendition of the now-classic comic series X-Force.
– Winner of stand-out title of the year: Sleep-Away Camp for Postmodern Cowboys.
