“Sucker Punch” filmmaker, Zack Snyder maybe in place to helm a new wartime thriller, “The Last Photograph”. Originally, director of the Swedish The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Niels Arden Oplev, was slated to direct but has since left the project.
The Last Photography was penned by writer Kurt Johnstad, who also wrote “300” and is the story of two Americans, a photo journalist and a retired solider, who try to rescue a kidnapped person in Afghanistan. It is rumored that Christian Bale and Sean Penn are set to play these two Americans.
Now this could be interesting for the auteur filmmaker. Zack Snyder hasn’t heralded much good faith with his last effort, “Sucker Punch” and is slowly faulting off the cliff of geeks and fanboys and it feels like it would be a good move to take on a war film. Zack Snyder is good at shooting action, there’s no doubt about that. The only question is, will Zack Snyder effective reach the dramatic highs war films need? Who knows at this point?
