Shocker: Hollywood Features Movie With Terrorists Who Are... Muslim?

I kind of have the feeling that we'll find out we're the real monsters, as in Scott Beauchamp's spec script, Honey, I Cut Out The Kids' Tongues!

Minor hope: the director here is Peter Berg, an actor turned director who looks kinda dumb but is really pretty damn smart and very funny. He did the overperforming The Rundown, which really should not have been as good as it was, even if it did have Seann William Scott and Christopher Walken in it.

Hope against hope that he's not a complete dick. But I'm ready and willing to be disappointed. Look, if the terrorists are Muslims, that means the Westerners have to be worse, and the orders will come down "from the President himself" for Jamie Foxx to let the terrorists kill the captives, because, damnit, there's oil on the line. (Foxx, of course, will disobey this order.)

And yes, that is Jason Bateman you saw get taken hostage there. The terrorists have no idea they're up against one of the FBI's deadliest experts in dry sarcasm.

Thanks to Slublog.

PS, anyone see Peter Berg on Dinner For Five talking about his disastrous location-scouting trip in the Amazon for The Rundown? One of the funniest Hollywood stories I've heard.

I've been trying to find a clip of that for years. No dice.
