Taken 2 helmer Olivier Megaton will direct Land Of The Living, an abduction thriller scripted by Sean Gullette. It’s an adaptation of the British novel by Nicci French (the pseudonym of British husband-and-wife team Nicci Gerard and Sean French). The film will be produced by Emjag’s Alexandra Milchan, Stone Village’s Scott Steindorff, Battleplan Productions’ Marc Frydman, Film 360’s Scott Lambert, and Dro Entertainment’s Peter Fruchtman. Stone Village’s Dylan Russell and Scott LaStaiti will executive produce the film. Shooting is expected to begin in January 2013. Scott Pictures — Stone Village’s finance arm — is fully financing the film, which tells the story of Abbie Devereaux, a young advertising executive who is abducted on the streets of Los Angeles, manages to escape and — with almost no help from the police — tracks down her would-be killer.
