Filmmaker Antoine Fuqua is in final talks to direct Hunter Killer for Relativity Media. We reported last month that Salt director Phillip Noyce left the project, which allowed for Antoine Fuqua to take the reins.
Hunter Killer centers on a new submarine captain who teams up with a Navy Seal team to rescue the Russian president. They must also stop a Russian general that started a military coup before he can start World War III.
Jamie Moss (Street Kings), Arne Schmidt (XXX: State of the Union), and John Kolvenbach wrote the screenplay for Hunter Killer, which is adapted from the Don Keith and George Wallace novel, Firing Point.
Based on Don Keith and George Wallace's novel "Firing Point," the story centers on an American sub commander and a Navy Seal team that must rescue the Russian president and defeat a renegade admiral who's attempting a coup.
It is being reported that Phillip Noyce felt the material was too similar to films he's made, and will concentrate on Relativity's love story Timeless, and the thriller Above Suspicion from Bold Films.
No replacement director has been announced.
Hunter Killer comes to theaters December 21st, 2012 and stars Thomas Dekker, Josh Friedman, Steve Galich, Lena Headey, Jeffrey G. Hunt, Jim Lima, Heather MacDougall, James Middleton. The film is directed by Phillip Noyce. »
