So, what does the classic 70’s disaster flick The Towering Inferno and the 80’s action flick Die Hard have in common? Ok – obviously, they both take place in tall buildings and – they are both one of my favorite non-horror films ever!
So – should anyone ever take those two premises and meld them into one movie – well that might just kick major ass! What’s that you say, Dwayne Johnson has a new flick coming out?
Yep, that’s Neve Campbell in there – great to see her in such a high profile project. Here’s the official line from Universal Pictures on the high octane blockbuster SKYSCRAPER.
“Global icon Dwayne Johnson leads the cast of Legendary’s Skyscraper as former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Sawyer, who now assesses security for skyscrapers. On assignment in China he finds the tallest, safest building in the world suddenly ablaze, and he’s been framed for it. A wanted man on the run, Will must find those responsible, clear his name and somehow rescue his family who is trapped inside the building…above the fire line. Written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Central Intelligence, We’re the Millers), the 3D action-thriller is produced by Beau Flynn (San Andreas, Baywatch), Johnson, Thurber and Hiram Garcia (San Andreas, Central Intelligence). Skyscraper’s executive producers are Dany Garcia (Baywatch, Ballers), Wendy Jacobson (San Andreas), Eric McLeod (Kong: Skull Island, Pirates of the Caribbean series) and Eric Hedayat (The Great Wall, Real Steel). The film will be released by Universal Pictures.”
July 13th is when the action hits!
