    I am a big fan of the German director Wolfgang Petersen and saw on the IMDB site that he is directing a new film called "Troy" next year. Does anyone know what this film is about? Is this a story of Helen of Troy or something else???

    I haven't heard about it but I also like Peterson as a director. I would love to see a film about the Trojan War! Please please please!

    I'm definitely going to have to keep my eyes peeled on this one. It looks like there's ALOT of potential here.

    Yeah, $140M is hefty, but this should have a huge potential audience. The story hasn't (AFAIK) been done on film in recent time, and yet it's one of the most well-known stories of all time. I'm really excited about it.

    Awesome news! I love these kinds of movies, and Brad Pitt is a personal fav of mine. What a great story to be told, if done right.

    I didn't check this thread out yesterday, but I was watching a local chat show last night and they had Eric Bana on. He said that Brad pitt and himself had been looking do do a project together for a while, and they felt this was the right one. He also said it was an incredible story/script, well of course he has to say that [​IMG]. No other details were discussed, they didn't even talk to him about The Hulk (they did that last time). It seems to be an ambitious project from what I have read in the above posts, and I like those 2 actors.
