Tamahori gets Kiwi ‘Die’ job

Kiwi 'Braveheart'

New Zealand helmer Lee Tamahori has inked to return to his native directing roots with the Larry Gross-penned drama “I Shall Not Die” for Interscope Communications, sources said Thursday.

Pic, which was described as “Braveheart” in New Zealand, will be produced by Don Murphy and Jane Hamsher’s JD Prods.

Tamahori, who helmed the arthouse hit “Once Were Warriors,” has had a spotty career in Hollywood with “The Edge” for 20th Century Fox and “Mulholland Falls” for Largo Entertainment/MGM.

Gross penned such pics as “48 HRS.,” “Another 48 HRS.,” “Geronimo” and last year’s Cannes Film Festival entry “This World, Then the Fireworks.” He shared credit on Wayne Wang’s “Chinese Box,” and wrote the TNT miniseries “David.”

Interscope is a division of Polygram Filmed Entertainment, which normally distributes the company’s films worldwide.

ICM agent Robert Newman reps Tamahori. Jim Lefkowitz of CAA brokered the deal for Gross.
