McG is in negotiations to direct the thriller “Puzzle Palace” for Summit Entertainment and Temple Hill says Heat Vision.
The story follows the son of a veteran cop who has been framed for murder. Evidence that could free him sits in the vaults of One Police Plaza, the most secure building in all of New York City.
Determined to find it, he ends up being locked inside the police HQ with crooked cops on his tail. David Guggenheim (“Safe House”) penned the script.
