I was sort of surprised to hear about it, yeah. I think (producer) Avi (Lerner) even said himself, "She doesn’t know it yet." So I was surprised, but also it’s something I’ve been looking at for a while and kind of interested in. I’m definitely interested in being a part of it, but that’s all I can kind of comment on right now.
Sounds like they are still in negotiations for her to take on the role. Lerner previously said that Simon West (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, The Mechanic) would direct.
