Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski is now attached to helm New Regency’s sci-fi thriller Archangel. Variety reports that Adam Cozad (The Gray Man) has signed on to write the screenplay, which tells the story of “a secret unit of the military that tracks and hunts down aliens among us.” Cozad also recently wrote the script for the Jack Ryan reboot starring Chris Pine. Scott Free will produce Archangel.
Kosinski is expected to next direct Horizons (also known as Oblivion), a sci-fi actioner set up at Universal with Tom Cruise attached to star. That film was originally at Disney, but the Mouse House didn’t feel the PG-13 story fit with their library, so they let Kosinski shop the project around. An October start date is being eyed for Horizons.
