Darren Lynn Bousman to direct "Akula" heist thriller.

Darren Lynn Bousman will take the helm of "Akula," a heist thriller financed by Constantine with Paul W.S. Anderson producing alongside Jeremy Bolt. Mark Distefano ("Friends and Enemies") wrote the screenplay which takes place on a submarine. Bousman said “the tone is dark, but very different from the films I’ve directed recently." Bousman last directed "Repo! The Genetic Opera" with Alexa Vega, Paris Hilton and Bill Moseley. Prior to that he had a big run with three "Saw" films in a row before David Hackl helmed the last effort. The Kansas born director and writer made his feature-length directorial debut on "Identity Lost" back in 2001 which he also wrote.
