Rod Lurie Goes Over The “Borderline”

Rod Lurie (“The Contender,” “Straw Dogs”) is set to direct the thriller “Borderline” for Voltage Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

Justin Marks penned the story of a family taken hostage by fugitives. The father and lead captor engage in a battle of wits – the former trying to save his family, while the latter has nothing to lose.

The two leads are currently being sought with Lurie said to be aiming for a tone akin to “The Sugarland Express” and “The Getaway”.

Jamie Patricof (“Blue Valentine”), Nicolas Chartier (“The Hurt Locker”) and Craig Flores will produce.
