Paul Bettany and Rebecca Hall also star, with Pfister helming.
Written by Jack Paglen, the screenplay was developed by Annie Marter and Straight Up Films, whose principals include Marisa Polvino, Kate Cohen and Regency Boies. Polvino, Marter and Cohen will produce along with David Valdes (“Book of Eli”), Johnson and Kosove. Boies will co-produce.
Pfister was the cinematographer on Christopher Nolan’s “Batman” franchise and, besides Nolan coming on as a producer, has added “Batman” regulars Morgan Freeman and Cillian Murphy to the cast as well.
Stewart is repped by ICM Partners and played one of Bane’s main henchman in “The Dark Knight Rises.”
