Tony Scott May Have a Lucky Strike
Vince Vaughn considering starring

Tony Scott May Have a Lucky Strike

Vince Vaughn: action star? If we’re honest, we’d have thought the label would exist more naturally back in the late ‘90s or early 2000s. But if Tony Scott has anything to do with it, Vaughn may well re-establish his action man credentials for Lucky Strike.

Deadline reports that Scott is getting closer to directing the thriller, which would see a DEA agent teaming up with a drug runner to take down a drug cartel.

While Henry Bean’s script has sat on the long, long list of projects that Scott is interested in for a while now, it appears he’s increasingly thinking of it as his next potential directing gig. Which will disappoint anyone involved with or interested in Hell’s Angels, the Warriors remake, Top Gun 2, Potsdamer Platz, Nemesis and his still-to-be-named Chippendales drama. We’re honestly at the point where we just think Tony and brother Ridley add possible films to their schedules as a competition to see who can have the most projects bubbling away in development.

If – and it is still if for now – Lucky Strike comes together, it would potentially shoot in the late summer or autumn with 20th Century Fox releasing it around the world. But let’s wait and see whether Scott really does commit this time, shall we? As for Vince... If he's actually planning to star, it's time to hit the gym.
