Cold Shelter: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Alexander Witt is warming up to direct Cold Shelter for Wolfgang Petersen's Radiant Prods. Written by Wes Clark, the film is a character-based action thriller that tells the story of an American special forces operative who is sent to 1983 Cold War East Germany to infiltrate a terrorist ring. Once there, he begins to question the values he has always fought to uphold.
Production is slated to begin next year.
"What attracted me to the project was the moral complexity of the main character unfolding within a sophisticated international thriller, where who you can trust is tested time and again," said Witt, who is currently directing his first feature, the sci-fi actioner Resident Evil: Apocalypse, in Toronto.
