One saw his Akira live-action adaptation fall apart (temporarily…maybe). The other was in talks for The Crow reboot. Now, they might collaborate on Here There Be Monsters at Legendary, a company high on giant monster flicks right now with the upcoming Pacific Rim and Godzilla.
According to Vulture, Jaume Collet-Serra is in talks to helm the film and Bradley Cooper may star. According to the site:
Robert Zemeckis was last attached to the film. Collet-Serra – who gave us House of Wax and Orphan – was attached to helm Akira for Warner Bros. until it was put on hold over budgetary concerns.
