Holly FitzGerald’s Amazon survival novel “Ruthless River” is in development as a movie with “Bridge of Spies” writer Matt Charman.
The story centers on FitzGerald and her husband, setting out on a yearlong honeymoon adventure backpacking around the world. Five months into the trip, their plane crash lands in Peru at a penal colony walled in by jungle, and their blissfully romantic journey turns into a terrifying nonstop labyrinth of escape and survival. They ultimately end up on a four-log raft that separates them from the piranha-and-caiman-infested water until they finally realize that there is no way out but to swim.
Charman, who received an Academy Award nomination for his “Bridge of Spies” screenplay, is also attached

Also in talks to return to The Accountant sequel are the film’s producer’s Howell Taylor and Mark Williams while actor Jon Bernthal may also be back in some capacity as rumours state the follow-up could closely focus Bernthal’s character, a hitman who turns out to be the brother of Affleck’s Christian Wolff, Braxton. No word on whether Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons or Cynthia Addai-Robinson will be involved.
In the first film Affleck played Christian Wolff a mathematics savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Using a small-town Cpa office as a cover, he makes his living as a freelance accountant for dangerous criminal organisations. With a Treasury

Comic book action thrillers are so influential today, that more naturalistic suspense thrillers are giving way under the strain. Just winding up is a long series of paternal revenge & response thrillers starring Liam Neeson, who is forever striking back against the ‘evil forces’ threatening the sacred family unit. No action hero ever fights for right for its own sake anymore, it’s always because of some heightened sense of family loyalty or personal duty – a ‘me’ motive. My
