Heart of a Soldier: According to The Hollywood Reporter, a year after Universal Pictures decided to pull the plug on its West Point romancer Heart of a Soldier, the project is back. Helmer Peter Sollett has signed on to write and direct the film, marking his first project since his critically acclaimed indie film Raising Victor Vargas.
Rod Lurie was originally to direct Paul Walker in the most recent incarnation of "Heart." The project had been heading for a June 2003 shoot in the hard-to-access West Point campus. Walker is not currently attached to the project.
In the tradition of An Officer and a Gentleman, "Heart" follows a poor West Point cadet who falls in love with an East Coast socialite and is forced to chose between the Army or the girl.
