Senator Entertainment has greenlit Samuel L. Jackson thriller “Unthinkable” with Gregor Jordan (“The Informers”) attached to direct with production starting Sept. 2 in Michigan.
Senator will produce and finance with topper Marco Weber and Caldecot Chubb producing. Worldwide sales will be handled by Kimmel Intl., headed by Mark Lindsay.
Story centers on a major threat to the United States when the locations of three nuclear devices are shrouded in secrecy by a single terrorist. With only two days before they are deployed, a black-ops interrogator and a female FBI agent have to decide how far they will go to find them.
“Unthinkable” is the second collaboration between Jordan and Weber, who recently completed production on “The Informers,” starring Kim Basinger, Billy Bob Thornton, Winona Ryder and Mickey Rourke. That film will be released later this year.
Senator recently announced it was fast-tracking “Clock Tower” and has also optioned Brad Kessler novel, “Birds in Fall.”
