We’ve been bringing you lots of juicy pics and clips for Tony Scott’s latest, Unstoppable and we also hear that Scott is planning Top Gun 2. Added to that, Collider have news that Scott will also direct Mickey Rourke in an as yet untitled project, previously known as Potzdamer Platz.

Potzdamer Platz as a German train station, however the action now will take place in Puerto Rico. A previous synopsis had the story being about two soldiers in a New Jersey crime family looking to expand internationally, however Collider now give the synopsis as:-

Two Jersey mobsters are sent on a simple mission: send a message to their boss’s rival by wiping out his Puerto Rican compound.  The hit takes on new meaning when they discover a six year old girl in hiding.  Suffering an uncharacteristic bout of conscience, they allow her to live.  All hell breaks loose when the hit men later learn the little girl was the actual target and they were set up to execute a plan of cold-blooded revenge by killing the child of the woman the mob boss once loved.

That’s certainly an enticing sounding synopsis and given his work on Man on Fire, Scott clearly has what it takes to portray the Latin American underworld. Where this might fit into Scott’s schedule is less clear. Although Top Gun 2 will apparently not be his next film, he does still have rumoured connections to adaptations of Mark Millar’s Nemesis, John Grisham’s The Associate and  Sonny Barger’s Hell’s Angels.

Also rumoured to be involved are Javier Bardem and Jason Statham, though only Mickey Rourke is signed on so far. We will bring you more news as we get it.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
