The Hollywood Reporter has published a new article on the projects that writers are rushing to complete before the impending writers strike, which could start as soon as Thursday, Nov. 1. Included in the update are X-Men Origins: Wolverine and G.I. Joe:
Fox’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” which is being penned by James Vanderbilt (“Zodiac”), and “The Fast and the Furious 4” by Chris Morgan are among dozens of scripts that are being flipped, a process that actually is uniting execs and scribes in one goal: to get a script that is filmable.
Paramount in fact has asked for three different scripts from three different writers for “G.I. Joe,” and will perhaps combine the best parts from each one. Those involved in the novel tri-partite draft effort are Stuart Beattie (“30 Days of Night”), John Lee Hancock (“The Alamo”) and the writing team of Brian Koppelman and David Levien (“The Winter of Frankie Machine”).
