Crash director, Paul Haggis, is in final negotiations to direct and produce Against All Enemies for Columbia Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter. He will initially supervise scribe James Vanderbilt (The Rundown), who is penning a second draft of Enemies.
Haggis is currently writing Death and Dishonor for Warner Bros. Pictures, which he is attached to direct. Based on Richard A. Clarke's best-selling memoir, Enemies chronicles how the Bush administration handled the al-Qaida threat before and after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Clarke, a former U.S. terrorism czar, offers the ultimate insider's account into the nation's security apparatus, featuring a cast of power brokers that includes President Bush, Condoleezza Rice, Donald Rumsfeld and Clarke.
