Former comedian Joe Cornish impressed many with his directorial debut, Attack The Block. While there’s been much talk about what he might helm next (including the next Star Trek movie), he’s spent much of his time busily co-writing Tintin and Ant-Man. However now he may have found his next directing project as Cornish has been hired to direct the spy thriller Section 6, according to TheWrap.
Jack O’Connell is attached to star in the film, which is set during the first World War and follows Sir George Mansfield Cummings, the first director of the British intelligence agency MI6. Several A-list actors are interesting in playing Cumming, with Jack O’Connell set to be a promising young recruit.
Cornish will direct from a script by Aaron Berg. It’s not known when it might shoot.
