    WOW, I’m even more excited about this one now. I read somewhere this one is gonna be more of a political thriller instead of a straight action flick and I REALLY like the sound of that.

      Yeah, I had heard about that political thriller bit before, too. Redford joining does definitely bode well, too. Great actor joining the ranks.
