Training Day scribe David Ayer has been hired to adapt the thriller Deep Sea Cowboys for DreamWorks based on an article that appeared in Wired magazine last March, says Variety.
The story chronicles a salvage crew that tries to save a capsized Japanese cargo ship transporting cars into the U.S.
Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are producing.
Ayer’s writing credits include U-571, The Fast and the Furious, S.W.A.T. and Street Kings, the last of which he also directed.
