Jan The Forefront

Although it allowed “Speed” director Jan De Bont to do “Twister” at Amblin, Fox, which has a two-picture, firstlook deal with De Bont, has given the director some of the best films in its arsenal. Aside from the highest priority, the “Speed” sequel, Fox has given De Bont its remake of the 1962 film “The Day the Earth Caught Fire,” in which nuclear explosions at both poles send the earth on a collision course with the sun. De Bont also is developing “Stealth,” a David Freed-scripted adventure from Davis Entertainment about a disillusioned pilot who aims his nuclear-armed bomber at the White House, as well as “Prince of Darkness,” the Joseph Finder novel the studio recently bought for $1.5 million. Buzz hears two more projects are headed his way: “Paper Boy” and “Minority Report.”
