ON

Alexandre Aja is set to direct drama The Contractor, reports Variety.

Ian Jeffers (The Grey, Castlevania) is rewriting the script. Alexandra Milchan will produce.

The story is set in a world where the U.S. government can no longer afford to fight wars and authorizes private contractors to send a band of elite soldiers on missions around the world.

Aja will tackle the project after he completes Piranha 3-D for Dimension Films.
