Phillip Noyce in talks to helm spy thriller Edwin A. SaltJuly 1st, 2008 - 2:48 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, July 1 (ANI): Phillip Noyce is currently in talks to direct the Kurt Wimmer-scripted spy thriller Edwin A. Salt.
Noyce and Hollywood hunk Tom Cruise had been mentioned as possible participants in the Warner Bros. drama “The 28th Amendment,” but recently their focus shifted to Salt, which is being produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Sunil Perkash, reports Variety.
The drama casts Cruise as a CIA officer who’s accused by a defector of being a Russian sleeper spy. He must elude capture long enough to clear his name.
Though he hasn’t firmly committed, Cruise has stayed with “Edwin A. Salt” as Wimmer wrote drafts for directors Terry George and then Peter Berg before each ankled.
According to sources, “Edwin A. Salt” still doesn’t have a firm start date. (ANI)
