‘Olympia’ gets helmer

Leth signs on to Columbia Pictures feature

Danish helmer Asger Leth has signed on to helm “Olympia” for Columbia Pictures.

Mark Gordon (“10,000 BC”) is producing the love story, which is set against the backdrop of the ancient Olympic Games in Greece as war waged between Athens and Sparta. Lawrence Inglee also produces.

Robert Rodat (“Saving Private Ryan”) wrote the screenplay, and helmer Gavin Hood penned a rewrite.

Leth made his feature directorial debut with the documentary “Ghosts of Cite Soleil,” which chronicled the final months of Jean-Bertrand Aristide’s regime in Haiti. That film nabbed the DGA Award for documentary in January. He is also attached to helm a remake of Italian crime thriller “La Scorta” for Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment.
