Baltasar Kormakur to Direct ‘Cascade’ for Fox, Film Rites and Scott Free

Baltasar Kormakur is in negotiations to direct “Cascade” for Fox, Scott Free and Film Rites.

The pic is based on BBC mockumentary “The Day Britain Stopped,” which revolves around a 2003 train strike that was first in a chain of events that ultimately led to a meltdown of the British transportation system.

This version is set after an oil tanker collision in the Persian Gulf sets off an international crisis.

Ridley Scott will produce for Scott Free with Steve Zaillian producing for Film Rites. Garrett Basch is also a producer.

Kieran Fitzgerald penned the script.

Kormakur made a name for himself with his gritty action thrillers “Contraband” and “2 Guns,” both starring Mark Wahlberg. He recently wrapped production on the adventure pic “Everest” and is developing the period action pic “Vikings” for Working Title.

He is repped by WME.
