Brett Ratner

The new revenge comedy Tower Heist hits theaters this Friday, but it sounds like a future project will again take Brett Ratner away from action comedies and into more serious territory. The director previously made quite an impressive turn towards dramatic thrillers with Red Dragon back in 2002, and now Deadline reports Ratner is attached to direct Hunting Eichmann, a thriller based on a real-life story about Israeli agents who secretly entered pro-Nazi Argentina to capture Adolf Eichmann, known as the architect of the Final Solution. Eichmann had been on the run for almost 20 years before the team of agents was dispatched.

Justifiably so, some of the members on the team were actually Holocaust survivors and the small team of eight agents risked their lives at every turn in order to bring Eichmann to Israel and face a trial in Israel. The script for this real-life story will come from Ann Peacock who has written a variety of films from the recent thriller The Killing Room, to the cheesy romance Nights in Rodanthe and the blockbuster fantasy The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Normally I don't find myself thrilled with new projects from Brett Ratner, but if he can deliver something with the same quality as Red Dragon, especially with a compelling story such as this, then I'm willing to give the director my attention until he does another Rush Hour or something else terrible.

Red Dragon was decent... however, I suggest you or anybody else for that matter should watch 'Manhunter' instead. It's a vastly superior film about the same story.
