Williams cousins to stoke ‘Fire’

Warner Bros. has rekindled “Young Men and Fire” by setting Tod C. Williams to direct the film. His cousin, Tod H. Williams, is adapting the Norman Maclean book. WB is eyeing a spring 2006 start date in Montana. The studio tried for more than a decade to make a movie out of a book written by the “A River Runs Through It” author just before he died. The book is about a 1949 Montana forest fire that, stoked by a rare combination of winds and explosions, produced flames the equivalent of 40 stories tall that moved 50 mph. Battling it was a group of smoke jumpers who parachuted into the conflagration. A total of 13 men died in the blaze.
