While “Thor” fans are still wondering if Matthew Vaughn will ever get the chance to direct the live-action version of “Thor” (there are “Thor” fans wanting to know this, right?), they’ll at least be able to see something from their guy when Vaughn’s script, “The Debt”, a remake of an Israeli film, is made into a movie by Miramax. Alas, Vaughn will only be co-writing the script with Jane Goldman, and will not be directing it. Still, the idea behind the movie sounds intriguing enough, at least until “Thor” gets off the ground already.
The Hollywood Reporter has more:
“Debt” revolves around three Mossad agents who, 20 years after World War II’s end, learn that a Nazi war criminal is still alive and set out to pursue him across Europe. Assaf Bernstein directed the 2007 Israeli film, titled “HaHov,” which like the remake is set in the 1960s and 1990s. The Israeli movie was not released stateside.
Not a bad idea for a movie. I’m still waiting for “Thor”, though. I don’t know what it is about that film, but just the notion of a “Thor” movie makes me kind of giddy, if only because I think it could be really great, or really, really cheesy…
