Alexandre Aja Hires A “Contractor”

Alexandre Aja (“The Hills Have Eyes” “Mirrors”) is set to direct the drama “The Contractor” for Gaumont reports Variety.

Story is set in a world where the U.S. government can no longer afford to fight wars and authorizes private contractors to send a band of elite soldiers on missions around the world.

Ian Jeffers (“The Grey,” “Castlevania”) is rewriting the script while Alexandra Milchan will produce.

Aja will get to work on it once he completes “Piranha 3-D” for Dimension Films.
