CONNERY GETS TASTE OF ETERNAL YOUTH

Director Rob Cohen has spent almost two years honing “Dragonheart,” using ground-breaking f/x technology to match Sean Connery’s voice to the movements of a lifelike computer-generated dragon. Though he might be expected to avoid another f/x ordeal, Cohen, who’s about to direct Sly Stallone in Universal’s “Daylight,” is already excited about another project that would use high-tech methods to shave 30 years off of Connery.

Cohen is attached to direct the Warner Bros, project “Do Not Go Gentle,” a script written by David and Peter Griffith. In it, Connery would play an astronaut who panics just before a trip to the moon and aborts the mission. Years later, when he finds out he’s dying, the astronaut is haunted by his missed opportunity and becomes obsessed with somehow getting back on a space ship and redeeming himself. Though Connery will capably be able to handle the senior scenes, Cohen said they will use a new technology to cinematically return the actor to his 30s.

The technique had better be accomplished, since audiences remember the youthful Connery as James Bond. “You can take years off him with the computer,” said Cohen.
