For a brief moment, Doug Liman was flirting with more serious fare, developing projects like "Attica," an adaptation of Olen Steinhauer's "The Tourist," the documentary "Reckoning With Torture: Memos And Testimonies From The War On Terror" and a big-screen version of Jack Finney's "Time And Again." But we'd wager in today's climate that kind of stuff is hard to get off the ground, so no surprise that in the past he was also linked to the comedy "El Presidente" with Tom Cruise and the former Tony Scott project, "Narco Sub." And for his next gig, he's stepping right up to the blockbuster world again for a big-time video game adaptation.
