After teaming up on the upcoming Macbeth starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, StudioCanal and Justin Kurzel are looking to team up again on a new adaptation based on the book THE SIEGE: 68 HOURS INSIDE THE TAJ HOTEL.
The book from Adrian Levy and Cathy Scott-Clark recounts the 2008 terrorist attack on the iconic Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in India by a group of heavily armed Pakistani militants. Anthony McCarten, who adapted last year’s The Theory Of Everything, will pen the script. The project will follow ordinary tourists enjoying their vacation, the employees of the grand hotel, and the terrorists themselves.
Kurzel is currently filming Assassin’s Creed with Michael Fassbender due out next year.
