Warner Bros. Adavances WHITE KNIGHT With Scott Cooper In Talks To Direct

Deadline reports that Crazy Heart and Out Of The Furnace helmer Scott Cooper is well on the way to board a potential franchise launcher, White Knight, for Warner Bros. The studio is reportedly advancing the film in the vein of Bourne and 007 with a plot that centers on a disgraced secret service agent hired to protect the family of an arms dealer only to find himself at the center of a global CIA manhunt.

The news comes in the wake of the studio's insistence on an Oscar campaign for Cooper's most recent Whitey Bulger biopictoral crime drama, Black Mass starring Johnny Depp. Should the deal go through, Cooper would helm and rewrite The Judge scribe Bill Dubuque's earlier draft with John Lesher and Mark Williams producing.
