"Fast and the Furious" Director Working on "Isaac Newton" Action Film

"Fast and the Furious" Director Working on "Isaac Newton" Action FilmSubmit Comment
Director Rob Cohen (Fast and the Furious, xXx) has teamed with producer Gene Kirkwood (Rocky) to develop an action film franchise based on Sir Isaac Newton, the historical figure best known for his work in the fields of physics and mathematics.

Cohen will write the script, which will focus on Newton as the chief detective and head of the British Mint. He also will oversee the design of a graphic novel based on the script. This is the first projects under the new BiteSize Entertainment company, which is described as a multi-platform studio.

"We see this as a real opportunity to redefine the concept from day one, using multiple channels and outlets to more creatively develop and extend the characters and storyline while generating huge excitement in advance of the theatrical release," said Kirkwood.

"Newton as the chief detective and head of the British Mint."

Sounds like a variation from Sherlock Holmes.

I don't know how you can combine the greatest scientist with an action movie? Intriguing to say the least.

Paul Walker as Sir Isaac Newton?

..and Shia Lebooff as his amusing young sidekick?

Wow. Just....wow. Newton, one of the least action-oriented people ever born, and one of the smartest, most influential men of history, is being turned into fodder for some garbage Hollywood flick directed by that hack *sshole Rob Cohen.

Wow.

Well, I guess the Albert Einstein Michael Bay-directed science fiction film can't be far behind.

Wow.
