‘Field’ under Radar

Carnahan reteams with Liotta on cop pic

Helmer Joe Carnahan will reteam with his “Narc” star and producer, Ray Liotta, on the gritty cop pic “Soldier’s Field” for Radar Pictures, with Good Machine Intl. handling international sales.

Scribe Matthew Carnahan will base the script on Harry Hurt III’s Esquire article “Riding Shotgun With the Posses.”

“Soldier’s” is the story of a group of disenfranchised ex-cops who find they can make more bucks by bringing a brutal form of justice to the crime-ridden neighborhoods of New York City.

Liotta will serve as exec producer with Radar chairman-CEO Ted Field, who put the deal in the works after screening Carnahan’s critically acclaimed “Narc” at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

Radar president Scott Kroopf and senior production exec Erica Huggins will oversee development and production.

Tiara Blu, the production company headed by Liotta, Diane Nabatoff and Michelle Grace, will share producing chores with Radar. Nabatoff and Grace will produce with Kroopf and Huggins.

David Boyle, executive VP of business and legal affairs, brokered the deals for Radar. Endeavor reps the Carnahans.

Radar’s Tom Cruise starrer “The Last Samurai” is expected to begin lensing for Warner Bros. in September, with Ed Zwick directing. Its psychological thriller “They” will be released by Dimension in August.

Radar now is prepping “Chronicles of Riddick” at Universal for an August start; its “Le Divorce” for Fox Searchlight began shooting last week in Paris.

Also set for a summer start are “How to Deal” starring Mandy Moore for New Line Cinema and a reconceptualization of the 1974 “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” produced by Radar’s Platinum Dunes partnership with Michael Bay.
