Known for his unique, brilliant and bonkers efforts, Night Watch, Day Watch and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Russian-Kazakh director Timur Bekmambetov is set to form a new partnership in Hollywood. Following his team-up with Tim Burton, Bekmambetov is to unite with excessive filmmaker and producer Michael Bay and will direct the ‘aerial pirates’ adventure, Heatseekers. The duo will work alongside Platinum Dunes producers, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller and Wanted scribe Chris Morgan, using a script written by F. Scott Frazier.

Bekamabetov is still working on bringing a sequel to his bullet-bending actioner Wanted. However, it appears Heatseekers will be his next film as star James McAvoy will be busy for the foreseeable future as wheelchair-bound Professor Xavier in Bryan Singer’s pre/sequel, X-men: Days Of Future Past. Bay is also prepping his own fourth Transformers effort.

We’ll keep you posted on potential Heatseekers casting.
