Dominic Sena ("Swordfish", "Gone in Sixty Seconds") is set to helm the film adaptation of Antarctic mystery thriller "Whiteout" reports Production Weekly.
Kate Beckinsale is in negotiations to star in the film scheduled to start shooting mid-March in Montreal and Manitoba.
Penned by Erich & Jon Hoeber and based on the award-winning Greg Rucka graphic novel mini-seres, the story follows U.S. Marshal Carrie Stetko who uncovers the first murder ever in the Antarctic.
Adding to the problem is that the sun is about to set for six months and she must catch the killer before he leaves the ice or be stuck there with him in the dark.
