Tripoli: The historical epic that is set to reunite director Ridley Scott with his "Gladiator" star, Russell Crowe, could be shopping for a new home. A Fox spokesperson insisted that the project is still set up at the studio and that while executives are grappling with the budget -- instead of letting it go -- they are "exploring co-financing partnerships and other possibilities."
Boogeyman: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Screen Gems has acquired North American distribution to the horror project Boogeyman from Senator International. The project is the first film produced by Ghost House Pictures, Senator's genre label headed by Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert. In preproduction with Mehdi Norowzian set to direct, Boogeyman is due to begin lensing in April.
It's described as a classic horror project centering on a young man traumatized by memories of terrible events he experienced in his childhood bedroom. Years later, he reluctantly returns home to face his fears. Raimi and Tapert will produce from a script by Eric Kripke, Juliet Snowden and Stiles White.
Troy:The Hollywood Reporter reports that Warner Bros. Pictures is disputing a published report in Britain's Guardian on Tuesday that says the Wolfgang Petersen-directed "Troy," scheduled to begin shooting in late April in Morocco, "has been put on hold due to fears of a terrorist attack and a looming war on Iraq." The report claimed that the studio could not "guarantee the safety of the cast and crew in the Muslim country." Countered Dawn Taubin, the studio's president of domestic marketing: "It has not been put on hold, we are still going forward." Taubin said that Warners could not comment on whether the location of the shoot will change, though sources close to the project said that filming would most likely shift locations, possibly to Mexico. "The safety and welfare of the cast and crew is of utmost importance to us, and we will bear this in mind as we make production decisions," Taubin said.
Brad Pitt, Eric Bana, Orlando Bloom and Rose Byrne are on board to star. Troy has been eyeing a May 21, 2004, release date.
