Timur Bekmambetov to helm “Heatseekers”

PanARMENIAN.Net - Quite the action team-up is taking place for the upcoming film Heatseekers, Collider reveals.

A couple of years ago, Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes studio had acquired a spec script called Heatseekers for Paramount Pictures. The story centered on aerial “pirates” and was likened to Fast & Furious and Point Break. Now word comes that that Wanted and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter helmer Timur Bekmambetov has come aboard the action project to direct, with Bay maintaining his producer role.

Per Heat Vision, Bekmambetov has signed on to direct Heatseekers with screenwriter F. Scott Frazer set to rewrite George Mahaffey’s spec script. Plot description reads: “the story follows a young ex-military pilot who infiltrates a gang of aerial pirates working out of Bangkok and takes part in an elaborate tower heist using powered gliders and parachutes.”

Bay will produce alongside Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, and Fast & Furious scribe Chris Morgan has also signed on as a producer.
