Drive Director, Bond Scribes Team Up

“Drive” and “Only God Forgives” filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn will team with regular James Bond film scribes Neil Purvis and Robert Wade for a new film Refn will direct.

All that’s known about the plot is that it will involve an Asian setting and have both thriller and action elements. The project is in very early stages at this point.

Winding Refn is developing and producing the project with Lene Borglum through their Space Rocket Nation company. His latest feature, “The Neon Demon,” is due to open later this year and he’s producing the “Maniac Cop” remake which begins shooting this Summer.

Refn, Purvis and Wade remain attached to the “Barbarella” TV series adaptation currently setup at Amazon Studios.
