Colin Firth To Visit Vinterburg’s “Kursk”

Colin Firth is in negotiations to star alongside Matthias Schoenaerts in EuropaCorp.’s submarine disaster movie “Kursk”.

The true story tale follows the K-141 Kursk, a nuclear-powered submarine that sank to the bottom of the Barents Sea in August 2000. As the sailors fought for survival aboard the disabled sub, their families desperately battled political obstacles and impossible odds to save them.

Danish helmer Thomas Vinterberg (“The Hunt”) will direct from a script by “Saving Private Ryan” screenwriter Robert Rodat, based on Robert Moore’s book “A Time to Die”.
