"Attack the Block" filmmaker Joe Cornish has emerged as the top choice to direct "Section 6" for Universal Pictures.
Cornish has apparently beaten out the likes of David MacKenzie and Tom Hooper which explores the formation of Britain's secret intelligence agency - Military Intelligence Section 6 - better known as MI6.
Jack O'Connell ("Unbroken," "Starred Up") is attached to star in the film which Lawrence Grey, Marc Platt and Adam Siegel are producing.
The film's script was the subject of an intense bidding war back in October which Universal won.
