After being delayed with Relativity’s Chapter 11, HUNTER KILLER has attached Donovan Marsh to direct the action drama starring Gary Oldman and Gerard Butler. It has also been given a July 25 start date.
The film is based on the George Wallace and Don Keith book Firing Point which centers on an American submarine commander sent deep in Russian waters to save the elected Russian president in the midst of a military coup.
Marsh previously directed iNumber Number, which premiered the 2013 Toronto Film Festival. More recently, Marsh adapted the Pulitzer Prize-winning author Anthony Doerr’s short story “Memory Wall” into a feature which he will direct with Nick Wechsler producing.
