Simon West Prepares "Salty" Dish

Simon West Production has gained rights to Mark Haskell Smith's novel titled "Salty" to develop it into film feature with West himself intending to direct.


Apparently Simon West has his attention focused on book-based film project this time. The English filmmaker has recently picked up the movie rights to a Mark Haskell Smith's novel via his Simon West Productions with an eye to direct.

Titled "Salty" just like the book's name, the picture will revolve around a reformed sex-addicted bass player who is dragged by his ex-supermodel wife for a vacation in Thailand. While spending time there, his wife unexpectedly gets abducted by Thai pirates raising money to buy a new boat. So far, there is no word yet on cast lineup.

West, who initially worked as a director for ads, began his career in filmmaking through Touchstone Pictures' action drama flick "Con Air." His latest directorial work "When a Stranger Calls" released last February has grossed more than $47 million in domestic market only.
