Phillip Noyce

Last year he delivered  a decent, though completely unbelievably action thriller with Angelina Jolie in Salt. Now it looks like director Phillip Noyce has found his next project in the form of a Black Hawk Down style adaptation. Moviehole reports they've heard the director is in talks to helm an adaptation of Don Keith and George Wallace's unpublished novel Firing Point. Going by the title Hunter Killer, the story follows an American sub commander and a Navy SEAL team that must rescue the Russian president and defeat a renegade admiral who’s attempting a coup. The project has been actually in the works since 2008.

Pierre Morel (Taken) was once attached to the project, but he's since fallen away from it. Last we heard about a new project from Noyce was his negotiations to direct Timeless from a script by Enchanted screenwriter Bill Kelly. Before that, the director was also attached to the thriller Wenceslas Square. It's not clear which project will come immediately next for Noyce, but since Relativity has been sitting on the script for Hunter Killer for a few years, I'm betting they want to move quickly to start production. Apparently Noyce has already turned down the chance to direct a potential sequel to Salt, so he's giving his full attention to a new project. Thoughts?
