The Bourne Identity and Mr. & Mrs. Smith director Doug Liman is in talks to take on Narco-Sub, TheWrap reports. The project was formerly set to be directed by the late Tony Scott.
Set up at 20th Century Fox, the action thriller is scripted by David Guggeneheim. Plot details of the project have not been released, but narco-subs in real life are so named because they're submersible vehicles built to transport narcotics (particularly from Colombia to Mexico) and their compact size is designed to elude radar.
Liman's next, Edge of Tomorrow, stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt and is set to hit theaters June 6, 2014.
