Martin Campbell (“Casino Royale,” “Goldeneye”) is set to direct the action thriller “Nagasaki Deadline” for Alcon Entertainment, Lightstorm Entertainment and 8:38 Productions reports Variety.
The story is centered on an emotionally damaged FBI agent who must decipher historic events in a desperate race to avert a terrorist plot.
David and Peter Griffiths (“The Hunted,” “Collateral Damage”) penned the original screenplay which William Broyles Jr. (“Cast Away”) is currently working polishing.
James Cameron is one of several producers on the project. The project is aiming to begin production next year after Campbell wraps up the American film remake of his own 80’s BBC mini-series “Edge of Darkness”.
