Amanda Seyfried And John Cusack Teaming Up For Thriller The Bullet?

Amanda Seyfried And John Cusack Teaming Up For Thriller The Bullet?

Amanda Seyfried's schedule is plenty packed these days, filming the futuristic thriller Now opposite Justin Timberlake, signing on recently for the kidnapping revenge film Gone, and getting ready to open her revisionist take on Red Riding Hood with director Catherine Hardwicke. But has she made room for one more movie in her lineup, to shoot in Boston this April?

According to Boston film production sources (via
Bleeding Cool) she has. They're hearing that director Patrick Alessandrin will be in the area come April to shoot The Bullet, which has Amanda Seyfriend and John Cusack on board to star. Here's the only information available about the plot:

"The dark thriller about a man only known as “The Clockmaker” who devises the ultimate plot of revenge against a seemingly random group of people by manipulating them to kill one another.



No word on whether Cusack will play the killer-- an interesting change of pace I'd actually be interested to see-- or just another one of the victims. Also no confirmation of whether or not the movie is as much of a Saw knockoff as it sounds right now. Both Seyfriend and Cusack have been known to make their share of garbage among actually good movies-- Cusack more than ever these days-- and Alessandrin's one major credit is B-13: Ultimatum, the sequel to the French action film that garnered relatively good reviews.

If the news is even true-- it's hard to confirm information on sites like this, and Bleeding Cool doesn't know anything more than we do-- we might have a bizarre Seyfried/Cusack pairing to look forward to, and also some questions about what was supposed to be Alessandrin's next project,
Ten with Bruce Willis. We'll let you know if we figure out more. http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Amanda-Seyfried-And-John-Cusack-Teaming-Up-For-Thriller-The-Bullet-23310.html

 

Amanda Seyfried and John Cusack may shoot new movie in Boston

by Christine on February 22, 2011 · in Boston,News


According to Wicked Leaked, a new movie called The Bullet will be shot in Boston this spring.
Though we have found little additional information about the movie, it is apparently “a dark thriller about a man only known as ‘The Clockmaker’ who devises the ultimate plot of revenge against a seemingly random group of people by manipulating them to kill one another.” Amanda Seyfried and John Cusack are set to star.
Michigan is also mentioned as a potential filming location but given the current state of their tax incentives, producers may be looking for a replacement location.

Amanda Seyfried And John Cusack To Star In Patrick Alessandrin’s The Bullet?Submitted by Brendon Connelly on February 22, 2011

As I understood it, Patrick Alessandrin is currently working on the thriller TEN with Bruce Willis. I don’t know the details of his schedule there – if he’s already shot the film, is currently mid-production, or if the film was delayed or even cancelled – but I do recall reports that filming was set to start in December.
Knowing what was going on with TEN would probably make matters clearer regarding this new report, and very possibly sift crap from gold. Let’s give the timing the benefit of the doubt for now.
Over on Beantown.Name, a site which offers updates on movie projects for actors and film crew seeking gigs around the Boston area, Alessandrin will be in the city this April to make The Bullet. Here’s how they pitch it:
Amanda Seyfried and John Cusack will star in the dark thriller about a man only known as “The Clockmaker” who devises the ultimate plot of revenge against a seemingly random group of people by manipulating them to kill one another.
Seyfried’s very hot right now, and Cusack’s a handsome devil, so this should be a popular cast. Alessandrin has also shown some capabilities with action in B-13: Ultimatum.
I’ve not been able to dig up any more info on the project so far, but stay tuned.
