Jonathan Mostow

Back in January, we thought that Philip Noyce might have finally found his next directing job, as he was reportedly set to make indie thriller For The Dogs with Sam Worthington in the lead. Well, the film’s still going ahead, but Noyce is nowhere to be seen, with Terminator 3 director Jonathan Mostow now aboard.

Worthington is still set for the lead in the film, which Oren Moverman has adapted from Kevin Wignall’s novel. The plot focuses on a solitary assassin who agrees to help a bright college girl exact revenge on those who murdered her parents and younger brother.

With the director now locked in, the cameras should be rolling in the autumn. Mostow last brought us Bruce Willis sci-fi pic Surrogates and wrote the basic story for Jennifer Lawrence thriller House At The End Of The Street.

Worthington has recently worked on Civil War drama The Keeping Room and will appear alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in David Ayer’s latest, now called Sabotage. The crime action thriller arrives here on February 21 next year.
