Morten Tyldum to Direct Ghostman

Headhunters director Morten Tyldum is set to helm the upcoming Warner Bros. adaptation of Roger Hobbs' recent novel Ghostman. Published earlier this year, the crime thriller is officially described as follows:

When a casino robbery in Atlantic City goes horribly awry the man who orchestrated it is obliged to call in a favor from "Jack." Only thirty or so people are sure this man exists, some believe he's dead, and none know anything at all about his true identity. Those are closely guarded trade secrets, to say the least, for an exceptionally trained, experienced, and talented criminal. But as he struggles to clean up the mess left in the wake of the bungled Atlantic City heist, he finds himself increasingly more visible as he's pursued simultaneously by the FBI and other interested, if mysteriously elusive, parties--a situation that requires every gram of his skill, ingenuity, and self-protective instincts, especially when offense and defense become meaningless terms.

Tyldum will soon make his English-language debut with the Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game. Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley are both attached to star.

The feature film version will work from an adapted screenplay by Peter Craig with Kevin McCormick producing through his Langley Park Pictures.
