Bodrov to take WB’s ‘Photograph’

Drama based on story by Zack Snyder

“Mongol” helmer Sergei Bodrov is set to direct “The Last Photograph,” a Warner Bros. drama that came from an original idea by “Watchmen” director Zack Snyder. Kurt Johnstad wrote the script.

Pic is a co-production between Snyder’s Cruel and Unusual Films and “300” producer Hollywood Gang.

Snyder will produce with partner Deborah Snyder and Hollywood Gang’s Gianni Nunnari. Craig J. Flores will be executive producer with Wesley Coller.

The film follows two men and the photograph that inspires them to travel to war-torn Afghanistan.

Bodrov wrote, directed and produced “Mongol,” which is about Genghis Khan.

“Photograph” is on a fast track for the studio, and Snyder’s Cruel and Unusual is becoming a serious player at WB, where the company has its deal.

Aside from “Watchmen,” which Snyder directed and Deborah Snyder produced with Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin, the company is in production on the animated film “Guardians of Ga’Hoole.” Also being prepped is “Sucker Punch,” the next film that Snyder will direct, from a script he co-wrote with Steve Shibuya from Snyder’s original idea. The company is teamed with Denise Di Novi on an adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s “Illustrated Man,” and is developing the zombie saga “Army of the Dead” and “Cobalt 60.”

Hollywood Gang just completed the Martin Scorsese-directed Leonardo DiCaprio starrer “Shutter Island” for Paramount, and Nunnari is about to start production on the Hany Abu-Assad-directed “11 Minutes” with Alice Braga, Mickey Rourke and Vincent Cassel. Also upcoming is “Silence,” the Scorsese-directed film that will star Benicio Del Toro, Gael Garcia Bernal and Daniel Day-Lewis.
