Gale Anne Hurd’s Valhalla Motion Pictures has signed Kaare Andrews to direct assassin thriller “The Hunted” based on his screenplay.
Hurd is producing “The Hunted,” and Ford Lytle Gilmore of Illuminati Entertainment is exec producing.
“The Hunted” centers on an assassin who’s hired to kill a young girl but refuses to complete the contract and then goes on the run from her bodyguards, his own organization of deadly killers and the man who trained him.
Andrews, currently in post-production on the supernatural thriller “Altitude,” has written and illustrated Marvel’s “Spider-Man,” “Wolverine” and “The Hulk” comicbooks.
Valhalla most recently produced “The Incredible Hulk” and “Punisher: War Zone” and is currently producing “The Boston Stranglers,” to be directed by Brian De Palma.
Andrews is repped by Pacific Artists and Aperture Entertainment.
