Blood, Guts And Glory For Fukunaga
Sin Nombre director prepares for war

Following a brutal Spanish-language gangster film and a Charlotte Bronte adaptation, where next for Sin Nombre and Jane Eyre director Cary Fukunaga? Why an American Civil War heist thriller of course: Fukunaga has just signed for No Blood, No Guts, No Glory.

The Focus Features project stems from a script by Chase Palmer, which made the buzzy Black List in 2009, and Palmer and Fukunaga will co-write the next draft.

The story is based on a real-life Civil War commando mission - the "Great Locomotive Chase" of 1862 - in which a spy and a platoon of union soldiers stole a train and sabotaged railway lines and telegraph wires providing support to a confederate stronghold, whilst being pursued by everybody.

Variety describe the film as a Civil War Dirty Dozen, but it also has the potential to be a goofier Kelly's Heroes, particularly since the raid was also the basis for Buster Keaton's silent comedy classic The General.

Since Fukunaga's eclectic tastes give us no clue to the potential tone though, we can do nothing but anticipate... No Blood, No Guts, No Glory is still listed as "in development" so there's no start date quite yet. Kevin Misher (Public Enemies) is producing.
