Ryan Reynolds Wanted for Motorcade
10.08.09 by BJSprecher
DreamWorks has had developing the Motorcade script by Hans Bauer and Craig Mitchell on their agenda for years, but it never quite seemed to come together as a viable project. Now, however, with a little script doctoring and a celebrated TV producer/director attached, Motorcade seems done spinning its wheels.
Motorcade tells the story of an ousted Secret Service agent who happens to be on hand when the U.S. President is kidnapped. Originally planned as a Tom Cruise vehicle with Len Wiseman directing, the script for Motorcade is now being worked on by Billy Ray. Jon Cassar is attached as director, which would mark the 24 producer/director's first gig helming a theatrical production. Variety reports that Cruise is no longer in consideration for the lead role, with DreamWorks interested in casting Ryan Reynolds instead.
