Director Simon West gears up to take on Dust and Glory
Posted by: Zack Bruce
Is this director day or what? This is my third post relating to a director taking on a new project. Not sure if they are all necessarily going to be good or not, but at least it’s better than news of a new extended TWILIGHT series. That’s a scary thought.
Director Simon West who has been busy on THE EXPENDABLES 2 has nabbed a project to take on after the action extravaganza. This one is called DUST AND GLORY. The story is adapted from the Evan Green romance adventure novel set during the 1950s’ Redex trials, which covered more than 10,000 miles of some of the toughest racing terrain in Australia, if not the world. It follows the rivalry between an American hotshot and an Australian legend. Sort of reminds me of Ron Howard’s next indie car drama, RUSH. This probably won’t be anywhere near that.
They hope to start on the film in Summer of 2012.
