Two time James Bond director Martin Campbell will direct the submarine thriller HUNTER KILLER, a film based on the 2012 novel FIRING POINT, by George Wallace and Don Keith. The cast of the film remains unknown, but the GOLDENEYE and CASINO ROYALE director has signed to direct the movie,
HUNTER KILLER will have major locations in Whittier, a small port town in Alaska. The film will deal with a standoff between American and Soviet submarines, much in the style of THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER, starring Sean Connery.
The latest major films directed by Campbell were GREEN LANTERN (2011), starring Ryan Reynolds, and EDGE OF DARKNESS (2010), based on the 1986 TV series he also directed.
