Timur Bekmambetov has inked his first deal to helm an English-lingo pic, Universal's "Wanted"

AS it is reported by Variety, Timur Bekmambetov has agreed to helm an English-lingo pic, Universal's "Wanted(2007)."

Based on a comic book series by Mark Millar, the drama action genre centers on a nebbishy white-collar worker who discovers his father is the world's most evil super villain. After his dad is murdered, the son is recruited into a covert organization and trained to take up his father's legacy.

Work behind the scene among others are Derek Haas and Michael Brandt who both wrote the script, Marc Platt who is set to produce the flick alongside Jason Netter and Jim Lemley, and Marc Silvestri to exec-produce.
