    Sigourney Weaver is the Point Person

    June 16, 2006



    Sigourney Weaver is in talks to join the cast of Columbia Pictures' Vantage Point, says The Hollywood Reporter.

    Dennis Quaid, Matthew Fox, William Hurt and Forest Whitaker already have signed on to the thriller.

    Directed by Pete Travis from a Barry Levy screenplay, the story chronicles an assassination attempt on the U.S. president (Hurt) and is told from five points of view, unfolding in 15-minute increments.

    Weaver will play a TV news producer for a CNN-type network who will do anything to get the story.

    Neal Moritz is producing, while Tania Landau is executive producing. Shooting starts Sunday in Mexico City.

    I don't expect this movie to be very watchable. Quaid and Fox are both very talented but also somewhat milquetoasty actors. Together with the procedural plot (even if it is done from a multilinear perspective, or whatever) it seems to amount to something in the same family as "The Sentinel", another movie I have no desire to ever see.

    Couldn't have said it better myself, especially looks interesting due to the bolded part of your post.

    If I can't find a job by then...well, I'll be all :csad:. I did have a job...but my hours were getting cut when we were shorthanded on staff.

    Is this set to be a big release that month of next year? Like will...this dominate that month?

    I doubt it'll get much in the way of marketing attention, if that's what you mean. I still can't wait for it. :up:

    I'm always wary when thrillers compare themselves to Rashomon.
