There is nothing sarcastic about the above title. In fact, I find myself in a state of shock wondering why someone hasn’t thought of this before. 20th Century Fox has hired John Moore, director of Behind Enemy Lines and Max Payne, to direct a 3D film adaptation of the History Channel show Ice Road Truckers. If shot in 3D, this film is guaranteed to be visually mind-blowing.

For those not hip to the series, it follows a group of truckers who drive 18-wheelers over a 350-mile highway made of ice to get supplies to diamond miners working in the frozen tundra of Canada’s Northwest Territories.

“It is very much a tough guy movie,” Moore said in the announcement via Deadline. “Here’s a bunch of characters who tackle problems by getting in there and getting things done. We’ll turn it into a mission movie that harkens back to Towering Inferno, Jaws, or The Guns of Navarone. You got a problem, go solve it.”

All of that sounds very testosterone infused and thus, lovely to me. Now lets just hope that Fox and Moore decide to shoot the thing in 3D, not opt for post-production conversion.
