Liam Neeson is likely to star and “Game of Thrones” and “Luther” director Brian Kirk has closed a deal to direct the long in gestation action-thriller “Narco Sub” at 20th Century Fox, Scott Free and Genre Films.
The story follows a notorious Ecuadorian drug lord who forces a disgraced American naval officer to navigate a cocaine-packed submarine past the U.S. Coast Guard.
David Guggenheim (“Safe House”) wrote the movie which Ridley Scott and Simon Kinberg are producing. Tony Scott, Doug Liman and Antoine Fuqua are among the filmmakers who have circled early incarnations of the project.
