Stephen Norrington to Helm The Lost Patrol – WWII Plus Monsters!

Stephen Norrington to Helm The Lost Patrol - WWII Plus Monsters!As if he doesn’t have his hands full enough with The Crow remake, Stephen Norrington has been tapped by Legendary Pictures to write and direct The Lost Patrol, “a supernatural action thriller set against the backdrop of World War II.”

THR reports that while plot details are being kept under wraps,
Norrington said the project hit all of his “geek-buttons” and contains “hardware, heroes, grime, insane monsters.” Rick Porras and Steven Boyd are producing along with Legendary’s Alex Garcia and Dennis Bakriges.

It sounds like Norrington, who previously directed Blade and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and has an extensive background in special effects, has his work cut out for him with regard to the screenplay. The project was picked up as a spec last year by Andrew Hilton, and Matt Cirulnick (“South Beach”) has already done one rewrite.

One thing’s for sure, though. Considering Norrington said the magic word “MONSTERS!”, we’ll be keeping a close eye on this one.
