The Weinstein Company has bought David Andron’s screenplay “Transit” and attached Andrew Lau (Infernal Affairs) to direct.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who produced The Weinstein Company’s Derailed and 1408, will produce the action-thriller through his Di Bonaventura Pictures, with Adam Kolbrenner attached as executive producer.
Lau’s producing partner Andrew Loo is co-producing Transit via the duo’s newly formed company Initial A Entertainment.
The screenplay tells the story of a man who is forced to kill three men in three different cities in 12 hours or his son will die. Andron also has penned the pilot for NBC’s upcoming retooling of “Knight Rider.”
