Barbet Schroeder to direct The Rescue??

According to ,Barbet Scroeder(Murder By Numbers,Desperate Measures etc)will be directing The Rescue for Franchise & Warner Bros.!The flick supposedly will have a $40 million buget.The site doesn't mention when production will start on this film.

btw-I tried to post this in the news section but I couldn't for some reason.
The same site states that Michelle Yeoh is in the cast of The Yakuza(where do they get this info)but I can't see that being true.The fact that this is the only site to mention this probably means the info provided is probably just a rumour.

I do think Barbet Schroeder is a good director and would def. give The Rescue some clout.
