Some exciting news this evening as Stephen Norrington has come aboard to write and direct, The Lost Patrol for Legendary Pictures. Plot details are still being kept under wraps though it is described as a supernatural action thriller set against the backdrop of World War II. The project was picked up as a spec last year by Andrew Hilton. Matt Cirulnick did a previous rewrite. Norrington said the project hit all of his “geek-buttons” and contains “hardware, heroes, grime, insane monsters.” Norrington, who directed comic book adaptations Blade and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, is also currently in development on a new screen iteration of The Crow for Relativity.
