Vince Vaughn isn’t the first name that springs to mind for an action movie. If he was ever going to be in a Tony Scott film, you’d expect it to be as the comedy relief who helps the hero save the world, but doesn’t get into too much trouble himself.
However Scott himself obviously things differently, as Deadline reports the director is hoping to make Lucky Strike his next movie and wants Vaughn to star. The script, by Henry Bean, is ‘an action film in which a DEA agent teams with a drug runner to take down a drug cartel.’ Unfortunately there are no more details than that and it isn’t clear exactly who Vaughn would play, but knowing Scott, Vince will have to get frenetic.
The movie is eyeing a late summer/early autumn shoot on an $80 million budget. It would appear therefore we’ll have to wait for some of the other projects Scott has in the works, including a remake of The Warrior and Hell’s Angels.
