John Moore is set to direct N.O.C., an action thriller from Film House Germany. The Irish filmmaker, whose credits include A Good Day to Die Hard, Behind Enemy Lines and the upcoming I.T., work the case of a deep-undercover CIA operative who discovers that a faction of the agency is collaborating with the terrorist cell he was sent to infiltrate. Stuck in a Berlin hospital and with the help of the EMT who saved his life, Alek must evade both the CIA and the terrorists if he wants to bring the evidence of the unsanctioned special op to the people he thinks he can trust.
Production is set to begin at the end of summer in Berlin on the pic, which Gabriela Bacher will produce for Summerstorm Entertainment, alongside Vandal Entertainment’s Navid McIlhargey and Cargo Entertainment’s Marina Grasic. Moore, Peter Veverka, Christian Angermayer and Klemens Hallmann will executive produce. Dave Matalon and Daniel Scott Gordon wrote the screenplay, based on an original idea by Gordon.
“N.O.C. is a complex, brain-twisting thriller — a bold, hard-edged story, ripped from the headlines,” Bacher and McIlhargey said. “And John Moore is the creative force for this kind of character-driven action film with an enthralling political undercurrent.
