It’s been nearly four years since Michael Mann last directed a feature film, but the wait for his next project may be over: The Public Enemies director has attached himself to helm an untitled thriller for Legendary Pictures with Chris Hemsworth attached to star.
Mann had been developing the project for over a year, co-writing the script with Morgan Davis Foehl, who is also penning Mass Effect for Legendary. Plot details are unknown, other than that the film takes place in a world of cyber threats and attacks.
Thomas Tull, Mann and Jon Jashni will produce with Alex Garcia exec producing.
With Robopocalypse being delayed and things moving slowly on the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, Hemsworth had been figuring out what to do next. He’s attached to the Warner Bros. adventure In the Heart of the Sea, which Ron Howard is circling. (Source)
