Spy Hunter film not dead

Resi director revives.

Work on the Spy Hunter film has restarted, this time with Resident Evil and Alien vs. Predator director Paul Anderson at the helm. "Phew."

It was previously expected to be in cinemas as soon as next month, but production was delayed indefinitely due to unseen snags. John Woo was tied with the film back then, as was wrestling star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. In fact, he has already starred as main man Alex Decker in the tie-in game hurriedly released last year to recoup some losses.

It isn't yet known if he'll retain his starring role, or who will be writing the revived project, which has been through several scripts - the most recent being from Collateral and Pirates of the Caribbean writer Stuart Beattie.

Spy Hunter tells the story of an agent working for a secret arm of the government. He has has use of a fancy vehicle that can change from a motorcycle into a jet-ski or submarine, and will have to hunt down and destroy a mysterious organisation called Nostra.

We'll let you know when more turns up.
