Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) is in negotiations with Universal to remake the Russian science fiction thriller ‘Black Lightning’. Bekmambetov produced the original film in Russia with Universal and it was a sizable hit, grossing $20 million. Variety calls the film “a sort of Slavic ‘Transformers’ meets ‘Batman’ about a car-mad student who super-tunes an old Soviet sedan and runs up against the criminal underground.”Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
