United Artists and Lakeshore Entertainment have set “24” co-creator-executive producer Joel Surnow to develop a contemporary spy thriller that will be directed by Casino Royale helmer Martin Campbell, reports Variety.
Surnow will write the film with Michael Loceff, a “24” co-executive producer. Lakeshore’s Gary Lucchesi and Tom Rosenberg will produce.
“This is an original concept that both UA and I feel will have an impact creatively and commercially,” Surnow said.
Campbell will next direct Edge of Darkness, a drama starring Mel Gibson.
