Director David Yates got rid of the excessive load on the film adaptation of "Harry Potter" and is open to new suggestions. And they did not take long. Warner offers Yates a choice of adaptation of "confrontation" by Stephen King or a gangster saga "Cicero", where the role of Al Capone is attributed to Tom Hardy.
Insiders blog Vulture of edition New York Times argued that "Confrontation" is a top priority for the studio. Warner, losing such a lucrative franchise like "Harry Potter", frantically looking for a replacement, so the film by King may partly help: the studio is going to divide the book into three parts. It seems that Warner in this respect, listened to the proposal of writer. Decides whether to remove Yates "Confrontation" or not, we will know within the next two weeks.
The argument against adaptation of Stephen King could called the tape "Cicero", which is also expected to initiate a series of films. At the heart of the picture - pilot television series, written by Uolon Green.
Green - writer of one of the masterpieces of Sam Peckinpah "Wild Bunch." The series was never put into production, but on the basis of the existing scenario the pilot will be rewritten in a feature film.
Hero of "Cicero" will be Al Capone, who can play Tom Hardy. The film (or series of films) tells of the ascent to the upper gangster criminal world and its incidence. True, in order to secure the candidacy Hardy, studios will have to somehow resolve the schedule of the actor - in spring next year he starts to shoot in "Mad Max 4."
But if these two options do not satisfy the director, he can always return to the genre of fantasy, which he mastered the last 4 years. I own the rights to Warner luxurious Fables comics publisher Vertigo, waiting in the wings.
