Joe Cornish has beaten out competing directors David MacKenzie and Tom Hooper for Universal’s spy thriller, Section 6.  After a bidding war that resulted in the studio’s winning seven-figure purchase, the search for a director turned into a rather lengthy process.  That search is now over with Cornish on board, and Jack O’Connell starring as a young protege.  Here’s the logline: “The historical spy thriller follows the World War I-era formation of British intelligence agency MI6 and its first director, Sir George Mansfield Cummings, who served as the inspiration for M in the James Bond series.”  (Via The Wrap)
