Foley in talks to helm New Line pic

Inside Moves

New Line Cinema is in final talks with helmer James Foley to steer “The Corrupter” into its shoals. It’s unclear whether it will be his next project, as “Blessed Child” at Paramount Pictures also has the director attached and is almost ready. Neither film has been greenlit.

For “The Corrupter,” which is the true story about a Gotham cop compromised by some Chinese mobsters, a new scribe has also been attached. Robert Pricci will do a rewrite on Laith Zawawi’s script.

Chow Yun-Fat, who stars in Columbia Pictures’ “Replacement Killers,” is in talks for the pic, but no deal has been struck.

Oliver Stone and Danny Halsted are producing through Illusion Entertainment. New Line VP Jay Stern is overseeing the project.

Foley’s feature credits include “Glengarry Glen Ross,” “Who’s That Girl,” “At Close Range,” “Reckless,” “Two Bits,” “After Dark, My Sweet” and “No Fear.”

Foley is repped by Rick Nicita of CAA.
