Yes, that’s right, another movie about the War on Terror and how shitty it’s all going from Hollywood. This time it’s D.J. Caruso’s “Eagle Eye”, which, according to Movie Hole has nabbed a big name in Billy Bob Thornon, who may or may not be playing one of the agents (the other being Rosario Dawson) who pursues Shia LaBeouf (playing a slacker) and Michelle Monaghan (playing a single mom), two non-terrorists mistaken for being involved in an assassination plot by some terrorist scumbags. The whole thing is supposedly based on an idea by Steven Spielberg, so I guess it should be good. Right? Um, I don’t know, but I’m guessing that if Spielberg has an idea for a movie and he wants someone to make it, then by God someone is going to make it — good or bad.
Billy Bob Thornton was last seen starring in comedies that no one has seen, including “Waking Up in Reno”, “School for Scoundrels” and the recent “Mr Woodcock”.
