Javier Gullon is about to get Terminated…
The Spanish writer has penned the dark script 478, with Arnold Schwarzenegger aligned to star in the film.
Gullon is best known for his exceptional work on the Denis Villenueve-directed Enemy, an adaptation of the Jose Saramago classic novel The Double that Jake Gyllenhaal starred in.
Darren Aronofsky’s Protozoa is producing and the aim is to shoot in the fall.
In 478, Schwarzenegger plays a man whose wife and child die in a plane crash. The tragedy was caused by an air traffic controller’s screw-up. The air traffic controller is vilified for his mistake and placed into protective custody. Schwarzenegger cannot let it go, and is determined to seek vengeance. Though is sounds like a standard revenge film, I’m told it isn’t. It is much more subtle than that — a real character piece more than an action film and gives Schwarzenegger a chance to show the chops he displayed on Maggie.
CAA will represent the film’s domestic distribution rights.
