The Mistaken tells the story of an American father who becomes a terrorist suspect while on vacation with his family.
Thats basically all that’s currently known about the project. It’s still in the very early stages of development, so when more is released, we’ll let you know.
No trailer yet.
No director has been attached to the film as of yet, but the screenplay by Stephan Hauser, whose main credit is writing the adaptation of Michael Crichton’s Sphere back in 1998, has been set to be released by Twentieth Century Fox on August 19 of 2011, although there are some reports that the film will be pushed back to 2012.
Who’s It For?
The tone of the story makes me think it’ll go R, but it’s too early to tell.
Movie Release Date
August 19, 2011. Maybe.
Who’s In It?
No casting news yet.
Stephan Hauser died during the making of Sphere, only to be revived on March 15 of 2005. Beware the ides of March.
Sphere, Rendition, Munich, Michael Collins,
What’s Good About It?
The story, if done insanely well, could be an Oscar contender. Playing on the paranoia and fears most Americans feel today, while also pandering to the Hollywood’s stupidity could make it big.
What’s Bad About It?
I think this is what Rendition was about, and that sucked. Sucked hard. Plus, I’m a little tired of films about terrorism. It’s just enough already.
Our Clever Prediction
I see The Mistaken flopping big time. Even if there are some major stars involved, it’ll still probably fail miserably.
