Producers aiming to shoot military thriller next year

The Icemandirector Ariel Vromen and Millennium Films are re-teaming on military thriller “Criminal.”

Producers are Benderspink’s J.C. Spink, Chris Bender and Millennium’s Mark Gill. Plans are to begin shooting next year.

The script, written by Doug Cook and David Weisberg, is about a brain damaged criminal — implanted with the memories of a murdered operative — who must help the CIA defuse a ticking bomb when a hacker overtakes the U.S. government’s nuclear submarines.

Exec producers are Jake Weiner, Christa Campbell, Lati Grobman, Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson, John Thompson and Christine Crow.

Israel native Vromen’s “Iceman,” is the true story of mob killer Richard Kuklinski and stars Michael Shannon. Vromen co-wrote with Morgan Land and is based on Anthony Bruno’s book “The Iceman: The True Story of a Cold-Blooded Killer” and interview footage.

Cook and Weisberg are also teamed with Benderspink and Lorenzo di Bonaventura on a pair of projects at Lionsgate — “The Money Plane” and an untitled female spy movie. Vromen is repped by CAA.
