Writer : “It’s Speed…. on a bicycle”.
Studio Exec : “I see… Stallone. No.. wait.. Bruce”
Writer : ”Well, I don’t know how well a 12-speed would be able to handle Sly or Bruce; heck, can they even handle it?”
Studio Exec : ”You’re right. Last thing we need is Sly to sue us for chafing. Last time that happened – well, it wasn’t chafing, but Sharon Stone was apparently responsible for the red blotching on his groin – we had to not only write him a cheque but sign off on that darn Expendables script – written in dot point on toilet tissue. Fuckin’ depresses me just thinking about it.”
Writer : ”Well, I’m thinking smaller – not Tom Sizemore smaller, but jockey smaller. Do you like Joseph Gordon-Levitt?”
Studio Exec : “Depends when he’s available, my wife’s not out of town unt… Oh wait. Yes. Love the guy. Did you see Brick!? Fuckin’ genius – shit, that movie is genius, I’m still astonished anyone could make a movie out of that crumby Ben Folds Five song! But it worked. Yes, now what will it take to get Levitt in a pair of bicycle pants?”
Writer : “Some wax and a tube of lube?”
Studio Exec : “I make the jokes here”.
So you get the picture. “Premium Rush” is David ‘Lost World’ Koepp’s latest directing stab, a clever action-thriller produced by a studio — a compromise picture, if you will. But then, so was “Speed”. And it turned out slicker than Danny Zuko’s mop top. But this, the story of a bike messenger who gets involved in a chase in New York City, looks like it could be quite a good movie. It has to be – I mean Gordon-Levitt doesn’t do bad movies, right!? *cough* G.I Joe *cough* No, but seriously, that guy usually comes with his taste buds in tact to studio meetings, so I remain hopeful.
Here’s the trailer for “Premium Rush” :
