Gary Fleder

In the past three years, writer Allan Loeb has become quite the hot commodity, moving from writing the indie Things We Lost in the Fire to the higher profile 21, and then scoring huge by giving new life to Wall Street 2. Now it seems Loeb is also responsible for reinvigorating the Escape from New York remake as well as having plenty other projects in active development. Now Variety reports Gary Fleder (The Express) will direct Protection, a spec script from Loeb centering on a college professor investigating the disappearance of his wife and daughter and must confront authorities from the Witness Protection Program to find them.

The original spec script will be rewritten by Mark Bomback (Live Free or Die Hard), who also wrote drafts of the upcoming films Unstoppable for Tony Scott, and Jack the Giant Killer for Bryan Singer. Though the story seems a bit generic, I imagine there will be some very interesting twists, much like the upcoming Liam Neeson action flick Unknown White Male, which has a similar premise complete with lots of action and plot twists. Fleder is no stranger to crime thrillers as he previously directed films like Don't Say a Word, Kiss the Girls and Runaway Jury, but I hope Loeb's script has a bit more spice for Fleder to bring to the big screen.
