Roger Donaldson in talks for ‘Umbra’

'Bank Job' director eyes Relativity thriller

“The Bank Job” helmer Roger Donaldson is in negotiations to direct “Umbra” for Relativity Media.

Hal Lieberman is producing alongside Relativity’s Ryan Kavanaugh and Tucker Tooley.

Plot details on the project are being kept under wraps, but it is described as a paranoid thriller.

Steven Karczynski penned the original screenplay.

Lieberman and Brian Paschal developed Karczynski’s spec and brought it into Relativity. Paschal will serve in some producing capacity.

Donaldson is no stranger to the paranoid thriller genre. He helmed 1987’s “No Way Out” and more recently directed Al Pacino-Colin Farrell starrer “The Recruit.”

Donaldson is repped by CAA.

Karczynski is managed by Michael Shlain.
