A remake of a 2007 Isreali film has just found a new director. According to The Hollywood Reporter, filmmaker John Madden has signed on to direct The Debt.
The film is a remake of Assaf Bernstein's HaHov, which centered on three 1960s Isreali intelligence agents who lost a Nazi war criminal in pursuit. The target re-emerges in the 1990s, forcing one of the agents to finish the job and preserve their original cover-up.
Matthew Vaughn and his Stardust writing partner Jane Goldman adapted the script and Vaughn will also produce with Kris Thykier.
No production schedule has been released.
