Carnahan to write, direct ‘Umbra’

Lieberman, Stern, Hansen set to produce thriller

Joe Carnahan (“The A-Team”) has been tapped to write and direct the thriller “Umbra” for Endgame Entertainment.

Hal Lieberman and Endgame’s James D. Stern and Doug Hansen are producing.

“Umbra,” based on Steven Karczynski’s screenplay, centers on a businessman who finds a mysterious package in his mailbox and is thrust into the middle of a government conspiracy.

“Umbra” had been set previously at Relativity Media with Lieberman producing and Roger Donaldson attached to direct (Daily Variety, May 26, 2009).

Carnahan’s credits include “Smokin’ Aces” and “Narc.” He’s in pre-production on “The Grey.”

“Joe is a master storyteller of action films, and we are thrilled to have him onboard this project and excited by his vision for this potential franchise,” Stern said.

Endgame’s in post-production on Donaldson’s thriller “The Hungry Rabbit Jumps” and in pre-production on Rian Johnson’s sci-fier “Looper.” Lieberman recently wrapped on “The House at the End of the Street.”
