Marauders and Extraction helmer Steven C. Miller will go before cameras in Alabama next month to helm The Solution Group’s action thriller, Live!. Borys Kit’s exclusive at The Hollywood Reporter confirms the news which sees Miller replacing award winning second unit action directors/stunt coordinators Darrin Prescott and Wade Allen for what would have been their directorial debut.
Eckhart retains his involvement on the film since 2015, starring now alongside Mad Max: Fury Road co-star Courtney Eaton for the story of Kyle Penny, a disgraced cop with only eighty minutes to live while in search of the police commisioner’s after daughter trapped somewhere in the city. With her abductor dead and a serial killer on his tale, his only hope lies with a young, ambitious reporter who wishes to film his chase with a live camera streaming in real-time for the world to see.
Jeremy Drysdale penned the script. Myles Nestel, Craig Chapman, and Skip Williamson are producing with Martin Sprock, Chris Tuffin and Renee Tab. Adam Goldworm is among the executive producers listing Phil Hunt, Ryan R. Johnson, Compton Ross and Tiffany Stone.
Miller’s next release will be the long-awaited Escape Plan 2: Hades, which currently awaits a date.
