It has been announced that Robert Connolly will direct the film adaptation of the Justin Scott maritime thriller "The Shipkiller".

The project will be produced by Gale Anne Hurd's Valhalla Entertainment and Australian-based film company Arenamedia, and the story is described as follows:

The novel was almost made back in 1979 with David Niven and Sean Connery, but that project never got it's feet off the ground. "I am ecstatic to be working with the remarkably talented Gale Anne Hurd to finally bring this brilliant novel and tale to life," says Connolly. "Ever since seeing Phillip Noyce's terrific 'Dead Calm', I had wanted to find the perfect thriller at sea and this is surely it."

Ms. Hurd has had a long and strong career as a producer, putting out works such as "Aliens", "The Abyss", "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines", and "The Punisher".

Robert Connolly is best known for "Balibo", which he also wrote.
