EXCLUSIVE: Dean Devlin‘s Electric Entertainment has acquired a new pair of feature projects, and I’ve learned the Independence Day producer will be directing one of them. As his second directorial effort, Devlin will helm Critical Hour, a pursuit action pic about a wounded hitman/whistleblower and two paramedics on the run from a cartel, from a script by Eric Tipton. Devlin, whose producer credits also include The Patriot and EP on the now-cancelled Leverage on TNT, is starting work on his feature directorial debut Geostorm from a script he wrote with Paul Guyot. As well as Critical Hour, Electric has picked up No Good Deed, a Brandon Boyce-penned thriller to be helmed by company exec Marc Roskin. Devlin, Roskin and Rachel Olschan are producing both projects. No Good Deed revolves around a pair of young valets who practice home burglary on the side. The two find themselves way out of their depth when they target the wrong house with a woman inside being held captive. Roskin is making his feature directing debut with the movie. Electric’s next project is The Wannabe, starring Patricia Arquette, Vincent Piazza and and Michael Imperiori and exec produced by Martin Scorsese.
