Spike Lee to direct action thriller 'Nagasaki Deadline' for Warner Bros.

Spike Lee has picked his new project and it’s an action-thriller centered on an emotionally damaged FBI agent. Called Nagasaki Deadline, the film, which will be financed and co-produced by Alcon Entertainment, puts an FBI agent in a desperate race to stop a terrorist plot. The agent must decipher historic events in order to avert disaster.

The script comes from screenwriting brothers David and Peter Griffiths (Collateral Damage) – William Broyles Jr. (Castaway) just completed the most recent draft. Avatar’s Jon Landau will also produce with Kira Davis (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) and Rae Sanchini (Titanic).
