Pajiba is reporting that Catherine Hardwicke might be directing Dot War for Paramount Pictures.

Dot War is being described "as War Games meets Real Genius, and it's about a video-game programmer who is trained by the government to fight terrorist using virtual technology.

The project is based on an old script from Laura Harrington. Apparently, it has been in the rounds of development for awhile. Hardwicke is attached to a few other projects but the only one with a greenlight is The Girl With the Red Riding Hood.

Apparently, she is waiting for the rewrite of Dot War and based on this that will determine if she will direct the film.
