It’s hard to turn down a good submarine thriller (emphasis on the word good). So you gotta think that when GoldenEye director Martin Campbell is asked to direct a thriller akin to The Hunt For Red October, only with a modern day twist where the rogue Russian sub captain actually does want to start WW3, that something good might just come out of it.
The Wrap, who had the scoop, adds :
“Hunter Killer” finds a renegade Russian military leader pushing the U.S. to the brink of a nuclear confrontation and shattering a decades-old peace agreement between the two former enemies. Cut off from all outside communication, a submarine commander and an elite Navy special forces unit are all that stand between the Russian assault and all-out war.
Hunter Killer has been touted as a movie for several years, Antoine Fuqua was even close to directing at one point. The film, set up at Relativity and Original Studios, is being produced by Neal Moritz, Toby Jaffe and Ryan Kavanaugh.
More tea, anyone?!
