Relativity, Millenium Update Details On HUNTER KILLER

Millenium
Relativity Media has been through some thick stuff in the past few years leading up to its current recovery from Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Thankfully and with help from private investors and hundreds of millions of dollars in financing, the company can now get back to the business of film and it has several in its slate, including the upcoming Fantasia premiere of Before I Wake later this month ahead of its September 9, as well as Owen Wilson starrer Masterminds on September 30 and Halle Berry thriller, Kidnap on December 2.

Apart from these as well as the floundering development of The Crow remake, one other film now includes the long-awaited novel adaptation, Hunter Killer which has since undergone a few revisions in its most recent announcement following casting news that sees Gerard Butler, Common, Gary Oldman, Billy Bob Thornton, Common, Taylor John Smith, and From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series co-lead, actor Zane Holtz starring. Read the official announcement below and stay tuned for more info.
Relativity today announced it will be co-producing Hunter Killer with Millennium Pictures. Dana Brunetti and Ryan Kavanaugh are also executive producing the film alongside producers Neal Moritz and Tobey Jaffe. Donavan Marsh is Directing.

Peter Craig and Jamie Moss wrote the script based on the George Wallace and Don Keith novel, Firing Point, about an American submarine commander sent deep in Russian waters to save an elected Russian president in the midst of a military coup.

"As a project we've had in development for over 6 years we are very excited to be moving forward on this picture and to be collating with Millennium Pictures. This will be our 6th picture with Gerard and it is a perfect role for him" said Relativity Studios representative.

The film is being shot in Bulgaria and the United Kingdom.

Millennium and Relativity have mutual creative approvals with Millennium having the tie breaker on all creative matters. Otherwise Millennium and Relativity are tied in all respects.

Additionally, Under the terms of the deal Relativity had a right, not an obligation, to acquire domestic distribution rights, which it has not exercised.
