While production of the film, starring Brandon Routh, is well underway in Sydney, a Spike mole tells us one of the sets is too big for Moore Park and will be built at Warner Bros’s Queensland headquarters.”
Will the Midnight Cowboy face off against Johnny Blaze? Veteran actor Jon Voight tells IESB that he still may have a role as well in the big screen adaptation from writer/director Mark Steven Johnson. Voight’s company is producing the film, apparently, as well.
