Gary Gray, the guy that helmed the 2003 remake.
The sequel's script also beings back the writing team of Wayne and Donna Powers, and rumor has it the second JOB will take the team to Paris, the French Alps and the beaches of St. Tropez.
Paramount would like to wrap up talks and start shooting the movie by March of next year, for subsequent release in November 2005. It could happen.
And who really cares how fast FOF goes... it says 54 ...it is. Does it really matter? We dont need "johnny CSI" conducting experiments on the ride. IJST isnt going for records. It should be a fun themed ride, sit back enjoy and what for const photos.
