Guy Ritchie, who made Snatch and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, as well as being Mr. Madonna, is rumored to be the director of the upcoming Sgt. Rock movie, based on the comic book about the great American soldier and his platoon of G.I. Joes. Even more exciting is that the rumor is coming from the producer of the film, Joel Silver.
So, Ritchie, who is currently directing RockNRolla, is apparently going to go directly from that project to this one. In unrelated news, Joel Silver once fired an assistant for bringing him the wrong sandwich. So, there's always that to think about.
