Tony Scott Boards Narco-Sub


Tony Scott has lined up a future project in the form of Narco-Sub, Variety reports. The action thriller is set up at 20th Century Fox from a spec script 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.

Scott’s last project was 2010’s Unstoppable, also at Fox and he has plans to tackle Hell’s Angels for the studio as well. He was also recently linked to a big-screen remake of Sam Peckinpah’s The Wild Bunch.

Guggenheim, meanwhile, is responsible for the script to Safe House, to be released in early 2012 through Universal Pictures.
