As the story goes, Brody will play "a daredevil courier trying to deliver a briefcase to an underworld figure who can't be found." Is he a daredevil for the ways he delivers packages, or a daredevil for taking on work from crime bosses? That remains to be seen. But the writing duo of Michael Brandt and Derek Haas (who helped out on both the 3:10 to Yuma and Wanted scripts) have written the screenplay and Russell Mulcahy is directing.
This means teaming one of my favorite actors with the director of the only film I ever walked out of (Ricochet). Since I was only 14 at the time, I'm prepared to give Mulcahy another chance, although The Scorpion King 2 and Resident Evil: Extinction make me a little nervous. But if the director of Heathers can also helm Hudson Hawk, anything is possible.
