Peter Travis Gets A Gun

Peter Travis (“Omagh,” “Vantage Point”) has been set by Warner Independent Pictures to direct the fact-based political thriller “Man Without a Gun” reports Variety.

Stuart Beattie (“Collateral”) wrote the script, based on a memoir by Gianni Picco, about the U.N. hostage negotiator who successfully brokered the release of long-held hostages from Lebanon-based terrorists in the late 1980s.
