Edge Of Tomorrow helmer Doug Liman is currently attached to quite a few projects. Currently, a 20th Century Fox adaptation of Marvel character Gambit which continues to remain in limbo since late last year as one of several films I've been hoping to see movement on and I can't really imagine what the hold up is.
At any rate, the director of upcoming 80's crime thriller, Mena, has been piling up and as of March, the stack includes The Wall, a new psychological war thriller from Amazon Stuidos in their first foray to original film territory. That film, written by Dwain Worrell, has now cast actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson following this week's report from Variety, which states he will play an American sniper caught in a cat-and-mouse game with an Iraqi sharpshooter who has him pinned behind a small chunk of concrete.
FilmNation is presenting the film to Cannes starting this week.

John Stockwell's Kickboxer: Vengeance is now available wherever movies are sold in the U.S. and Canada with other screenings pending. It's a film that otherwise garners caution for fans as a rebooted fanfare that nonetheless has actor and martial artist Alain Moussi leading the action vehicle next to the star of its original iteration, actor Jean-Claude Van Damme.
