After a series of action flicks, it's now time for Andrzej Bartkowiak to make a slightly different film project. The Polish director is currently engaged in negotiations to helm a thriller feature entitled "Black and Blue", so The Hollywood Reporter has revealed.
A production of Emmett/Furla Films, the picture centers on a Boston detective who tries to put an end to an escalating drug war between an old-school Irish mob boss and a group of young thugs only to learn that some of his family members might be involved. Jimmy Cummings and Brad Sohn are attached to pen the script while Emmett/Furla's M. Dal Walton III is set to executive produce along with Dorothy Aufiero.
Last directed "Doom" for Universal Pictures, Bartkowiak initially worked as director of photography for numerous movies before becoming a filmmaker. His other directorial efforts include "Romeo Must Die" and "Cradle 2 the Grave" which both featured Jet Li as the leading character.
