Relativity Media has picked up the D.B. Weiss-scripted Kashmir with Jean-Jacques Annaud in talks to direct.
According to Variety, the story revolves around three ex-mercenaries who stumble upon information as to where a wanted terrorist will be for a short period of time. They decide to brave a trip into the volatile region between Pakistan and India to catch the terrorist and claim the $30 million bounty on his head. Each man has a different motive for taking the dangerous journey, and their loyalties are tested when the going gets rough.
The French-born Annaud (Seven Years In Tibet) likes to shoot his films in authentic locations, no matter how remote. Weiss and Benioff said the director wants to lense the film as near as possible to the story's setting.
Producers are also scouting Argentina, Mexico and other areas in India as alternatives.
Production will begin in late spring.
