Leave it to Academy award-wining Suzanne Bier and screenwriter Eric Heisserer to take Josh Malerman’s award-winning 2014 novel, Bird Box, and turn it into what looks to be possibly one of the most entertaining thrillers going into the new year.
Nicolas Boukhrief’s 2004 French crime thriller Le Convoyeur, is now the center of Silver Pictures’s latest efforts toward a remake. Production details remain pending for the film aptly titled Cash Truck while it has been confirmed that Gravity star Sandra Bullock will lead the film.
