Mike McCoy to Direct Line of Sight

ON

Although Ben Affleck was last year rumored to be eyeing the project, The Hollywood Reporter now brings word that Act of Valor director Mike McCoy is attached to direct Line of Sight for Warner Bros.

Silver Pictures’ Alex Heineman, who is executive producing, came up with the idea for the film, which centers on an elite commando squad transporting cargo while dealing with a global threat. The movie tells the story from a point-of-view akin to a first-person shooter game.

The script was recently worked on by Peter O’Brien, who wrote “Halo: Reach” for Xbox 360.

Joel Silver and Andrew Rona are producing.
