Underworld director Len Wiseman is directing Shell Game, a future film noir he co-wrote. Back in 2005, he described it as a "cool character piece," set "about 50 years in the future, and it's about the illegal selling of immortality on the black market." Wiseman has wanted to make Shell Game for five years, but couldn't convince a studio to fund it as a big-budget feature until he'd directed the smash-hit Live Free Or Die Hard. [Variety]
