Alcon Entertainment has picked up an untitled screenplay written by Jack Paglen that will have Wally Pfister making his directorial debut. The Oscar-winning cinematographer has been a part of projects like Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, and Moneyball.

Details on the storyline are being held under wraps, but the screenplay was developed by Annie Marter and Straight Up Films.

Alcon Co-founders Broderick Johnson and Andrew A. Kosove has this to say about the project:

"We have been talking to Wally about making his directorial debut with Alcon for over a decade since we all worked together on Insomnia," they said in a statement. "Wally is truly one of the most talented artists with whom we have ever collaborated. To now have the opportunity to work with Wally as a director on this truly remarkable project, is a company highlight for Alcon Entertainment."

The project starts pre-production immediately and will start shooting this fall.
