J Blakeson to Helm Jonathan Nolan-Written 'Hell & Gone' for WB
This is definitely a project we should be keeping our eye on from now on. Heat Vision reports that upcoming British filmmaker J Blakeson, who directed The Disappearance of Alice Creed, is in negotiations to direct a project called Hell and Gone at Warner Bros. Not only is that a fantastic title for a movie, but apparently it's a Titanic-like historical tragedy and love story revolving around the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. Best of all, Jonathan Nolan, brother of Christopher Nolan and co-writer of The Prestige and The Dark Knight, is behind the Hell and Gone screenplay. What did I tell you, this sounds like a hell of a movie in the making.
If you haven't seen The Disappearance of Alice Creed yet, I highly suggest adding it to your list of films to rent when it hits DVD (starting Nov 23). And as a primer, check out the five five minutes, which should give you a quick sense of J Blakeson's sleek style and filmmaking sensibilities. That's also why I think this whole thing sounds awesome, because he's a very big up-and-comer and he's working off of a "Titanic-like" epic Jonathan Nolan script. We don't know many other details about it, as this is one of the first times Hell and Gone has ever been mentioned. As I said at the start, this is a project we'll definitely be keeping an eye on.
