Just chatting to someone about Kurt Wimmer’s next pic “Ultraviolet”. This guy’s in with it all, and says how extraordinary things are looking. They’ve been doing action tests on the thing for months, and apparently they’re looking trumps. It sounds like they’ve got something pretty special on their hands. It’s beginning its shoot in Shanghai in December, with Milla Jovovoch in the lead. I Actually just caught Wimmer’s “Equilibrium” for the first time. I must say – what a terrific little flick this is. How disappointing it didn’t do better than it did. Maybe there’s life in it for a series of direct to video sequels?
