Two years ago Paul Walker (The Fast and the Furious 1 and 2) proved that he was more than just a blonde-haired, blue-eyed piece of OC eye candy in Running Scared, a seriously twisted action thriller from director Wayne Kramer (The Cooler), and while his performance failed to translate into box office gold, it did manage to win the respect of his South African-born director, who made plans to cast him in several future projects.
In an interview given earlier this week on the set of the fourth Fast and Furious film (currently using the highly efficient working title, Fast & Furious), Walker revealed that the first of his plannned collaborations with Kramer is set to begin shooting this fall. Walker was coy about the details of the new flick, revealing only that its third act "will make Running Scared's look like Romper Room." Just to clarify: That's Romper Room, the children's TV show -- not Romper Stomper, Russell Crowe's crazy 1992 Neo-Nazi drama.
After that, he'll play The Devil in Kramer's Evilseek (as it's currently titled on IMBD), a thriller in which the Dark Lord inhabits the body of a cop who committed suicide.
I'm guessing that neither flick will be in the running for "feel-good movie of the year." Posted 04.25.08 by reelz
