Taken Helmer Goes In “Pursuit”

Pierre Morel (“Taken,” “From Paris with Love”) is set to direct the action-thriller “Pursuit” for Universal Pictures says Variety.

The story is based on the early career of conflict photographer Jason Howe, who fell in love with a woman while on assignment in Colombia, only to discover she was an assassin.

Jeffrey Weiner, Ben Smith, Jennifer Dana and Andrew Lauren will produce. Morel and Luc Besson are also developing a “Taken” sequel.
