Ronny Yu Avoids the Poisonous ‘Snakes’

Director Ronny Yu made a great decision today stepping off New Line Cinema’s project Snakes on a Plane- he will be replaced by ‘Cellular’ director David Ellis, according to Variety. Written by John Heffernan and David Loucka, pic is a thriller in which a witness to a mob hit must travel from Hawaii to the mainland to testify. Accompanying him on the flight is a crate of 250 poisonous snakes, which are to prevent the witness from getting to the trial. I wonder why the sudden leave of absence? Maybe Ronny is prepping another ‘Freddy vs Jason’ film?!
