Kormakur To Helm A Corruption Thriller

Baltasar Kormakur (“Contraband,” “The Deep”) is aiming to produce and direct an English-language corruption thriller through his own Blueeyes Productions label and XYZ Films.

The story comes from Kormakur’s research into a real-life corruption scandal involving the release of inmates for a day to serve as hired killers for crooked politicians.

Said events inspired this year’s Filipino Cannes entry “On The Job” which XYZ Films also represents, and that film is expected to be a part of the package that will go out to studios.
