Tarsem in ‘Take’ talks

Director pursues Bruckheimer thriller

Director Tarsem, whose feature helming debut “The Cell” hits theaters Aug. 18 via New Line Cinema, is in advanced talks with Jerry Bruckheimer Films to direct the action thriller “Take Down.”

Jerry Bruckheimer will produce. The Disney-based shingle’s Mike Stenson and Chad Oman will exec produce.

Bruckheimer has for some time been developing “Take Down” from the Carsten Stroud book “Deadly in Force: In the Streets With the U.S. Marshal Service.” Scribes Laith Zawawi, Henry Bean and John Lee Hancock have each done work on the screenplay adaptation.

Story centers on a U.S. Marshal team in hot pursuit of a politically motivated assassin. Plot thickens when the marshals discover that the killer is being protected by another government agent.

Tarsem was educated in a boarding school in the Himalayas before moving to Los Angeles. Studying film at L.A. City College and the Art Center College of Design, Tarsem began in musicvids, including R.E.M’s “Losing My Religion.” He’s also won several awards for his commercials direction.

Tarsem is repped by CAA.
