Martin Campbell Up To Direct Espionage Thriller, HUNTER KILLER
Live action cinematic adaptations of major action adventure novels are still a point of inspiration for film producers, and there are plenty that are in the works for TV and film, ranging from The Hunger Games and Divergent to properties like Jason Bourne, Mack Bolan and Rain as of late. Well, as of this week, Neal Moritz, Toby Jaffe and Ryan Kavanaugh are adding another to the mix in the form of Hunter Killer, with Green Lantern and Casino Royale helmer Martin Campbell back in the director's chair.
A rogue Russian admiral has begun a plot to bring the planet to the brink of World War III, all so he can reunite the Soviet Union. Now, it is up to a U.S. Navy submarine, its untested captain, and a Navy SEAL team to rescue the president, avenge the deaths of American sub sailors and avert the conflagration.
