MONACA — With 18 crew members huddled around him Thursday, film star Timothy Olyphant took a few steps, knocked on a screen door and coolly entered a Monaca house.
“Cut!” shouted the director, satisfied that the fifth try had been the charm.
Just like that, another scene had been wrapped for the DreamWorks film “I Am Number IV.” As Olyphant strolled toward a tent to escape the 86-degree heat, the film crew hustled to take apart mobile lighting, rigging and camera equipment that would be set up for the next scene, depicting Olyphant steering a menacing looking Ford Bronco up Atlantic Avenue.
“It’s a whole lot of chaos and a whole lot of noise, but it’s exciting though,” said Sandy McHenry, who watched that teeny-tiny slice of Hollywood magic from her back porch.
Spanish helmer Daniel Benmayor is in talks to direct Hitman 2 for 20th Century Fox. While not a choice many would have guessed, Benmayor made a name for himself directing commercials for Renault, Mercedes, Heineken, Samsung and Sony PlayStation. He recently made his feature debut on a Spanish movie called Paintball which is about a group of adrenaline junkies who get dropped in a forest for a paintball match but quickly discover someone is using real ammo.
While the first Hitman didn’t get rave reviews, the $30 million budgeted film made over $100 million worldwide. It’s no surprise Fox wants a sequel. The big issue for the studio is whether or not Timothy Olyphant will return as Agent 47. That’s because the actor would have to shave his head and he might not want to, as he’s currently riding a wave of great reviews for his work on the FX series Justified. More after the jump:
According to Deadline, Fox holds an option on Olyphant – meaning they could force him to return for the sequel. But even though they could make him return, it’s bad for both sides to make an actor or anyone work on something they don’t want to, as it means the bridge will be burned for anything else in the future.
