Olivier Megaton Set for Taking Gotham

ON

Olivier Megaton, the man behind this year’s Taken 2, has signed on to direct Taking Gotham, Deadline reports. Scripted by Thomas Kelly, the Emmett/Furla production is officially described as follows:

A secret unit of the NYPD is created in response to a string of brutal robberies in New York City. After a deadly sting operation, the elite unit is disavowed by the NYPD, forcing them to go deep underground in order to clear their names.

Megaton replaces the previously-attached Nicolai Fuglsig and will begin shooting next March.
