Sylvain White (“Stomp the Yard”) will direct an adaptation of the DC-Vertigo comic book “The Losers” for Warner Bros. Pictures and Dark Castle Entertainment reports the trades.
The Peter Berg and James Vanderbilt-scripted project follows a highly trained and eclectic Special Ops team that is set up, betrayed and left for dead. They go on a quest to find who sold them out and why, righting wrongs they encounter along the way.
Berg and Tim Story were previously attached to direct at different times. Shooting gets underway in early 2009.
Joel Silver, Akiva Goldsman and Kerry Foster serve as producers.
