Norwegian filmmaker Morten Tyldum ("Headhunters") is set to direct the film adaptation of Roger Hobbs' novel "Ghostman" at Warner Bros. Pictures and Langley Park.
Peter Craig adapted the script which follows a professional who cleans up messes and helps fugitives disappear. He is soon caught up in a casino heist gone terribly wrong.
The Ghostman finds himself in a race over 48 hours to clean up the mess or his mentor will be in the cross hairs of both an attractive CIA agent, and a ruthless drug kingpin called The Wolf.
Kevin McCormick will produce. Tyldum will next helm "The Imitation Game" starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
