David O. Russell wants to direct Vince Vaughn in 2 Guns
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
David O. Russell has become quite the talk of the town lately. He’s been lining up pictures left and right, I can think of three alone that we mentioned in the last two months (THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, the UNCHARTED film, and an untitled film that he’ll be working with Ice Cube on) and now he’s attached to the upcoming Universal adaptation 2 GUNS. The film is based on the graphic novel from Steven Grant about a DEA agent and military intelligence officer who are investigating each other for stealing money tied to the mob. Right now one of the front runners to star is Vince Vaughn. Russell is still in early negotiations, but this film seems right up his alley and I’m sure if he wants it, then he’ll get it.
If you haven’t had a chance to see THE FIGHTER then you really should before the Academy Awards because it really is as good as everyone says.
