    Jeffrey Nachmanoff Replaces Ed Zwick On 'American Assassin'

    The story of CIA operative Mitch Rapp spreads over several books, and CBS Films have spent years trying to use the material for a potential film. Gerard Butler, Colin Farrell and Matthew Fox were previously pursued for "Consent To Kill," which director Antoine Fuqua circled in 2008, but nothing came to pass. Now CBS is starting with a clean slate, with Deadline reporting that Jeffrey Nachmanoff has signed to direct "American Assassin," the eleventh book in the series, but the first chronologically.

    Watch: Trailer For 'Snabba Cash II' Starring Joel Kinnaman

    Back in 2010, considerable buzz was generated by Daniel Espinosa's crime thriller "Snabba Cash" (also known as "Easy Money") when it premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and stormed its domestic box office. Almost immediately it gained international interest with The Weinstein Company acquiring the distribution rights and Warner Bros picking up the remake rights and wasting little time in attaching Zac Efron to the project. Espinosa cashed in on the success and landed the director's chair for "Safe House," while the film's star Joel Kinnaman snagged a small part in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" remake, nabbed part in the otherwise awful "The Darkest Hour" and also took the lead on AMC's "The Killing."

    We know you must have been tearing your hair out about this for months -- which movie would you choose to see first on the weekend of April 13th. Would you go with Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon's intriguing "The Cabin in the Woods," the eagerly anticipated (by Razzies voters) "The Three Stooges," or Sly Stallone's latest steroid-fest "Bullet To The Head"? Well, Warner Bros have decided to make it slightly easier for us as they've delivered a bullet to the head of Stallone's film, temporarily at least, by pulling it from the schedule.

    Last year was bittersweet for fans of the Coen Brothers.
