Len Wiseman to direct supernatural military thriller Black Chapter

Apr. 22, 2014by: Alex Maidy

Len Wiseman may have gained some notoriety for directing LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD and TOTAL RECALL, but he continues to land plum projects in Hollywood. Visually, he is very talented but his scripts often leave something to be desired. His next project looks to be the paranormal action thriller BLACK CHAPTER which will team him with a screenwriter of some merit.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wiseman will team with Zak Penn on the film. Penn wrote X2, THE INCREDIBLE HULK and has a story credit on THE AVENGERS along with also scripting ELEKTRA and X-MEN: THE LAST STAND. BLACK CHAPTER will follow similar territory for the two as it examines superhumans, but not heroes.

Black Chapter centers on an FBI agent who is drawn into a classified military program that trains its operatives to use paranormal abilities.

Described as a merging of supernatural and spy genres, BLACK CHAPTER is being produced by Skydance Productions, so it likely is not going to get shorted in the budgetary department. Without much other detail to go on, this sounds like a really cool concept. The execution will make all the difference between this being a quality film or another UNDERWORLD retread.

BLACK CHAPTER has no release date or further details, but expect to hear more soon.

The Underworld franchise represents so much wasted potential to me and LFODH represents McLane's (sp?) descent into superhero territory fully realized. But hell, if Paul WS Anderson still gets to make his shitty Resident Evil movies why not Len Wiseman?

Congrats to Len Wiseman

not on his directing career but more for having compromising photos of studio executives which have allowed his directing career to continue.

Cool!

Hopefully there's lots of shots of people jumping off things before they explode! Like...at least a dozen of those shots would be nice. I could've used a few more of them in Die Hard but thankfully he made up for it with one every few minutes in Total Recall. So hyped!!!!.............
