The Fourth Kind Director Set for Two New Intriguing Projects
by Ethan Anderton
January 25, 2010
Despite the fact that The Fourth Kind failed to draw in the box office or critical acclaim, director Olatunde Osunsanmi has lined up two interesting projects for the future. First, Variety reports he's set to direct The Commuter, a script from Byron Willinger & Philip De Blasi which follows a man's deadly commute from work in New York City. Sounds like a Hitchcockian, wrong-place-at-the-wrong-time kind of story, and for some reason makes me think of that commercial featuring the dangerous Stunt City. In addition Osunsanmi, has been tapped to write, and potentially direct an adaptation of the yet-to-be-released video game Zero-G.
Fox optioned the game a little less than a year ago when the game was still in development. The story within the game focuses on an attack on a major US city with a devastating, never-before-seen weapon that creates a state of zero gravity (which just sounds awesome). Fox has intentions of turning the flick into a tentpole, but I've yet to hear or even find anything on the progress or potential release of the game itself, so I'm not sure if there's any other elements out there that'll give us a better idea of the story. Anyway, both of these projects sound pretty interesting for Osunsanmi, and we'll be on the look out for any further developments.

One advice to him : DO NOT MAKE YOUR MOVIES IN BULGARIA !!! It is an advice not a threat ... If you want to make a good movie make it some where ells not in Bulgaria 99% of the movies that were been made in Bulgaria are a big mistake and have no cinema release ... 4th Kind too was shot in Bulgaria but even it released in Cinemas but as (Ethan Anderton) mention it failed to draw in the box office or critical acclaim ... There is many reasons for that specially in the crew you work in Bulgaria ... !!! And if you ask why that movie 4th kind was being released in Cinemas ? .. because most of the movie has been shot inside( interior ) ... movies like that can be done every where !!! But if you want to make big movie no matter what kind but have an exterior shots then shot it some where ells not in Bulgaria .... ( I repeat this almost every time I hear about some one who want to make a movie in Bulgaria but most of them doesn't listen until the movie is finished and then they understand why I said that ) 😉 Just be careful ...

Yes I had been in Bulgaria ...and I worked with Bulgarian crew ! too Do not take my words in wrong way ... I have nothing against the nature of Bulgaria ( The Beauty of Bulgaria ) ... But the fact is you can find beauty of nature every where ... My point is about the people who make movies in Bulgaria ..The way they make movies !!! and as I wrote before 99% of the movies has been made in Bulgaria is a mistake and the producers and the directors realize that later when the shooting if finished !!! Some facts for what I am saying : What was the reaction of (Brian De Palma) while making (The Black Dahlia (2006)) and how he hated to be in Bulgaria working with some ... and what (Bruce Campbell) said in his movie (My Name Is Bruce (2007)) against making movies in Bulgaria and Last but not least : (Jean Claude Van Damme) who admit and point to Bulgaria as the Fu**ing Factory in his movie ( JCVD (2008)) And if you take a look to all the movies that been made in Bulgaria ... How many of them you can call a good movie !!???? Hope you got my point ! 😉
