Breaking: After getting shelved by Universal Pictures in April of last year, director Paul Greengrass’ would-be project about the final days of Martin Luther King Jr., "Memphis,” is back on again with producer Scott Rudin in tow. After Universal backed out last year, after reportedly getting cold feet about the MLK estate's issues with the allegations of infidelity in the screenplay, the project had no funding and Greengrass turned his attention to "Captain Phillips," his Somali pirates picture starring Tom Hanks set up over at Sony. Without funding, they essentially abandoned it.
