Joe Johnston Set to Helm Micro-Budget Thriller 'Not Safe for Work'
After taking on the big budget comic book movie Captain America: The First Avenger, director Joe Johnston is going to make something a little cheaper (but not cheap like The Wolfman if you catch my drift). Heat Vision reports the director will be at the helm of Not Safe for Work, a micro-budget thriller about a young paralegal who is trapped in the office with a killer on a mission to destroy files for another corporation. The film will be made for about $2.5 million which is a lot of money to us, but not much to make a feature film, especially when Johnston is used to making movies that cost $100 million or more.
The script comes from British writers Adam Mason and Simon Boyes, and this will likely be their highest profile film to date. Considering Johnston has had big bucks at his disposal before and delivered duds like The Wolfman and Jurassic Park III, so this should force him to be a little more creative behind the camera. The story sounds interesting since it will likely be centrally location for the whole film, and I'll be interested to see the kind of cast that comes together, especially with someone like Johnston and a small budget.
