Campbell, Haggis Set For “Umbra”

Director Martin Campbell and scribe Paul Haggis have been brought onboard the thriller “Umbra” at Endgame Entertainment says Deadline.

The story follows a business man who gets a mysterious package in the mail and gets caught up in a government conspiracy. Joe Carnahan was previously attached to direct but has since dropped out.

The pair will work in the same capacities as they did on the Bond reboot “Casino Royale” – Campbell will direct while Haggis is performing a re-write of the previous script draft by Steven Karczynski.

James Stern, Hal Lieberman and Lucienne Papon are producing. Shooting kicks off this Spring.
