A friend of Outtakes hears that Cannon has offered Harrison Ford $10 million (!) to star in the bike-racing "The Yellow Jersey," about a contender in the prestigious Tour de France.
Neither Cannon nor Ford's rep would respond to calls about the long bandied-about project, which has cycled through the studios--and stars (including Dustin Hoffman and Scott Glenn)--for some dozen years. Producers John Veitch and Gary Mehlman are now in France prepping the picture, which still awaits a director and a star. They're reportedly filming second-unit footage during the Tour, currently under way.
