A director swap has occurred on the adaptation of Kevin Wignall’s novel For the Dogs. Salt director Phillip Noyce was previously attached to direct the thriller with Sam Worthington onboard to star, but Variety now reports that Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines director Jonathan Mostow will be taking the helm. Mostow most recently directed 2009’s Surrogates and was also behind the 2000 submarine thriller U-571. Scripted by Oren Moverman (Rampart), For the Dogs centers on a solitary assassin who helps a young college girl seek revenge for the murder of her parents and brother. Worthington is set to play the assassin, while Hailee Steinfeld is onboard as the college girl. Producers are hoping to start production on the film this fall.
