Borgia Off
Neil Jordan's historical film collapses

13 February 2006  |  Written by

Neil Jordan’s latest attempt to make a film about Rome’s most famous historical family has collapsed.

Borgia was scheduled to start shooting in September, with Scarlett Johansson and Colin Farrell starring, but Jordan has now pulled out of the film, after failing to get the logistics worked out for the budget available.

He’ll instead make The Brave One at Warner Brothers, a revenge thriller starring Terrence Howard and Jodie Foster, which will kick off this summer.

This could have been wonderful, especially as, after finally seeing "The New World", my estimation of Colin Farrell has risen again, and my estimation of Scarlett has always been of the very highest, combine that with Jordan and it would be mouthwatering, lets just hope the one he's making instead is a cracker.
