Warner Bros.taps helmer for buddy action film

Wayne Kramer has been set by Warner Bros. to direct “Fully Automatic.”

Pic is a buddy action film in the vein of “Lethal Weapon” and is being produced by Joel Silver, whose Silver Pictures launched that franchise for WB.

Story follows two rookie cops out to make their mark and who team with a female former Delta Force operative to stop a mercenary who has stolen a cache of weapons.

The most recent draft was written by Marc Wolff. The hope is to get the film into production later this year.

Kramer, who’ll do a pass on the script, last directed “Running Scared” and “The Cooler.” He most recently completed writing and directing “Crossing Over,” which will be released Feb. 27 by the Weinstein Co.

Kramer’s repped by Endeavor and Artist Talent Mgmt.
