We’d been hearing about the Gerard Butler / Jamie Foxx movie Law-Abiding Citizen for a while, and no matter what the news was, the hook remained director Frank Darabont. But Darabont walked away from the film within the last couple of weeks, which pushed it way back on the ‘films of interest’ roster.
And now F. Gary Gray is directing, which bumps it back even more.
Oh, and if you read the THR source article, don’t get too worried that he’s taken over the Nimrod Antal movie Armored. The one Gray might direct is a totally different film, with Eric Bana.
