Jeff Wadlow Wants To Go Fast
Sony has an action script for him

18 July 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Deadline

Jeff Wadlow is a man in demand at the moment. A few scant days since word broke that the Kick-Ass 2 writer/director is developing an X-Force film for 20th Century Fox comes word that Sony is looking to secure his services for an action film called Go Fast.

No, it’s not Jeff Goldblum sitting in the back of a jeep constantly telling the driver to increase speed – the script the studio has xXx man Rich Wilkes working on is actually based around the speedy boats used by DEA agents to tackle drug smugglers at sea. Think Fast & Furious, but with more water and less 27-mile runways.

Wadlow may open up more about both potential projects this week as he’s set to arrive in San Diego with his Kick-Ass cast. Given that they’re both in an early stage of development, it’s anyone’s guess as to which would come first, and there’s always the chance someone else will hire Wadlow away for another project before either happens.
