After being in development for years with various directors and casting announced, it looks like the high profile Prisoners script could finally make the big screen transition.
Variety reports that Melissa Leo (Flight, Oblivion) will join previously attached Hugh Jackman in Alcon Entertainment’s thriller, to still be directed by Denis Villeneuve (“Incendies”). Michael Fassbender was once attached, as was Christian Bale.
Production is scheduled to begin early next year with Alcon is targeting a fall 2013 release through its output deal with Warner Bros. I’ll believe it when I see it.
Script, penned by Aaron Guzikowski (“Contraband”), “revolves around a small-town carpenter whose young daughter and best friend are kidnapped. After the cops fail to find them, he takes the law into his own hands, but in the process runs up against the big city detective assigned to the case.”
A project said to have echoes of The Silence of the Lambs and Seven.
