Mike De Luca, Roberto Orci Orci and Alex Kurtzman have agreed to star in the new action/thriller, Red Cell for New Line Cinema.
According to Variety, the story centers on experts convened by Homeland Security being mysteriously picked off one by one, forcing intelligence analysts to figure out which of the experts' disaster scenarios will come true next.
The Red Cell title is derived from actual groups hosted by Homeland Security and using creative thinkers from different vocations to help the government 'think outside the box' and prepare for possible terrorist scenarios.
Ben Ripley, who is writing the screenplay, consulted with his sister, Amanda Ripley, who works for Time magazine on national security coverage.
No production schedule is set for Red Cell.
