Torre! Torre! Torre! The Next Blockbuster?

Oct 31, 2007

Los Angeles - BREAKING NEWSTorre! Torre! Torre!, directed by Michael Bay,  starring Chazz Palminteri and Russell Crowe, and written by Steve Zaillian, will be the next major film from producer Brian Grazer, Imagine Entertainment and Universal Pictures.

"We're very excited about Torre! Torre! Torre!, said Grazer. "It has everything an action thriller could want and when it became available we jumped and we jumped fast!"

In an anticipation of the Writers Guild of America's looming strike - which would prevent screenwriters from working on any studio projects - Grazer and Zaillian apparently locked themselves in a Beverly Hills Hotel bungalow and within 24-hours produced a screenplay that has now won the approval of Universal, Bay,  Palminteri and the ever-finicky Crowe.

Principal photography could begin as soon as Saturday morning, according to an "exhausted" Grazer.

"I'm speechless," said the normally loquacious Peter Bart, editor in chief of industry journal, Variety.

"I'm tired," said screenwriter Zaillian.

Los Angeles Dodger's owner, Frank McCourt, greeted the news enthusiastically. "We worked very, very hard with Brian to make this happen," said McCourt. "We plan a spectacular and unprecedented premiere - at Dodger Stadium."  The Dodger owner said that he would "personally handle all V.I.P and celebrity parking."
