Jordan & Sheridan direct once more...

Word on the Irish film front last night heated up when news broke that Irish film Director Neil Jordan (Michael Collins and Interview with a Vampire) is to start work on a new movie with Nick Nolte (48hrs.) The duo are to team up in a movie called Bob the Gambler and the Hollywood blockbuster is due to start filming in France in March.

The film has a working title of Double Down and is based on a low budget French film made in black and white called Bob le Flambeur. Nolte plays a gambler whose bad luck changes when he pulls of the ultimate casino robbery.

Jordan has taken a break in writing his novel to make the movie and will follow this by making another film next year called Ned Kelly based on the famous Australian Outlaw.

Meanwhile, more news broke last night in Ireland about Jim Sheridan's plans for an Irish version of The Godfather. The Irish producer/director who made the movies My Left Foot and In the Name of the Father is said to have got 1m from Hollywood bosses for the script of the film Murphia.

The film is based on an Irish orphan who emigrates to America in 1895 and who becomes a powerful political figure through a life of crime. The story will tell his rise to the top of his fame in 1955.

Helping the script will be the writers of the new Muhammad Ali film with Will Smith, Chris Wilkinson and Steve Rivele who will share the writing credit's with Sheridan.

Sheridan is currently working on the script for his new movie which is based on the Wally Lamb hit novel, I know this much is true, in which Matt Damon will take the lead role.
