Maybe fanboys know this already (because they seem to know all things geek). But Legendary Pictures announced today it’s hired Stephen Norrington to write and direct THE LOST PATROL, a supernatural action thriller set against the backdrop of World War II. Rick Porras (THE LORD OF THE RINGS franchise) and Steven Boyd (A CHRISTMAS CAROL) are producing along with Legendary. The project was initially purchased as a spec screenplay by Andrew Hilton. Norrington, best known for directing THE BLADE and is currently also working on THE CROW, stated, “THE LOST PATROL hits all of my geek-buttons: hardware, heroes, grime, insane monsters.”
