"The Hunger Games" Director to Helm "Houdini" Action Film

Posted: May 2nd, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"The Hunger Games" Director to Helm "Houdini" Action FilmSubmit Comment
Gary Ross, who directed "The Hunger Games," refused to return for the sequel in order to focus on other projects. Apparently one of those projects is "Houdini," a film he's now in negotiations to direct.

The new movie is based on "The Secret Life of Houdini, The Making of America's First Superhero," a biography of Harry Houdini by William Kalush and Larry Sloman that was adapted by Noah Oppenheim.

The book was published in 2006 and became known for insinuating that the master magician and premier escape artist acted as a spy for Britain, helped the Secret Service and was in cahoots with police organizations. The plan is to create an action thriller franchise featuring a character who is part Indiana Jones and part Sherlock Holmes.

HOUDINI is following ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE KILLER, but in action form, I guess.
