Amy Ryan Driven To Monster Trucks
She’s aboard the live-action/CG adventure

Amy Ryan Driven To Monster Trucks

Amy Ryan is the not the first name that comes to mind when you imagine a film about giant CG vehicles that aims to launch a new action franchise. The closest she has come so far was War Of The Worlds, and that had Spiel-appeal. But according to Deadline, she's taken a role in Monster Trucks.

Paramount is putting the gears in motion on the movie, which has Ice Age director Chris Wedge set to call the shots. Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger, who wrote Kung Fu Panda and its sequel for DreamWorks Animation and were drafted in by Paramount for the new SpongeBob SquarePants film, are at work on the script.

Plot details are being kept under a giant truck's hood for now, but Ryan will apparently be playing a single mother trying to make ends meet while raising her teenage son. We're betting some trucks of the monstrous kind make that tough for her.

As we mentioned, this would be something of a departure for an actress who more traditionally appears in the likes of Gone Baby Gone and Changeling. She has West Memphis Three drama Devil's Knot set for release on June 13, with Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu's Birdman also incoming. We predict that one will feature 100% fewer giant CG trucks.

This film is a terrible idea
And I hope it crashes and burns. Ryan's one of the weaker cast members from the Wire... but she's still a cast member of the Wire, so I must wish her all the best More
