While Megan Ellison has made her name on working with auteurs like Paul Thomas Anderson, Harmony Korine and Kathryn Bigelow, she's got blockbuster aspirations.

But last month, movement began with her brother David Ellison of Skydance ("Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," "Jack Reacher," "Star Trek Into Darkness") teaming up with her on "The Terminator," and now the project is taking on some fresh blood.

There was a minor uproar surrounding last year's release of "30 Minutes or Less," a frothy action comedy from "Zombieland" director Ruben Fleischer, about a pizza delivery boy (Jesse Eisenberg) who some thugs kidnapped and forced to rob a bank with an explosive charge wrapped around his chest. If he doesn't commit the robbery, the thieves will set off the charge (and reduce his chest cavity to a splattery Jackson Pollock-esque masterwork). The movie was partially based on a real life case, although the filmmakers claimed to have only a passing knowledge of what actually transpired. Well, the actual tragedy is now being made into a feature film, with a decidedly more dramatic bent.
