Dominic Sena (Swordfish & Gone in Sixty Seconds) is set to direct Whiteout, an Antarctic whodunit adapted from a series of graphic novels by Greg Rucka, according to Production Weekly.

Kate Beckinsale is in negotiations to topline the film scheduled to start shooting the first week of March in Montreal and Manitoba.

Written by Erich & Jon Hoeber, the ticking-clock Whiteout follows U.S. Marshal Carrie Stetko as she uncovers the first murder ever in the Antarctic just as the sun is about to set for six months. She must catch the killer before he leaves the ice or be stuck there with him in the dark for six months.
