Miramax picks up Vaughn’s ‘Debt’

Studio acquires rights to Israeli thriller

Miramax Films has acquired worldwide rights to Matthew Vaughn’s “The Debt.”

Pic is an English-language remake of Israeli thriller “Ha-hov,” about three Israeli Mossad agents tracking down a Nazi war criminal over 30 years.

Vaughn is re-uniting with “Stardust” co-writer Jane Goldman to pen the script and is producing it through his U.K.-based shingle Marv Films, which he tops along with Kris Thykier. Vaughn will not, however, direct the pic, which should start lensing by the end of the year. Cast and crew, including the project’s helmer, are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Marv Films has a three-year first-look deal with Sony Pictures.
