“Minority Report” and “The Lookout” scribe Scott Frank is set to write and direct “Unforgiven” for GK Films says Deadline.
A feature film remake of the 2009 BBC mini-series, the story focuses on a woman who returns to society after serving a 15-year stint in prison for murdering two cops who tried to evict her family from their farmhouse.
When she is released, her plans to live a quiet life are disrupted when two sons of one of the slain cops come after her.
Christopher McQuarrie was previously linked to pen the script with Angelina Jolie being lined up to star at the time. Graham King and Tim Headington will produce.
