The Antoine Fuqua thriller looks like it's gaining the right kind of momentum, and just might be his next film, after Olympus Has Fallen.

News straight out of the American Film Market (AFM), courtesy of Screen Daily, says that the thriller, titled Ocean Beach, has been pre-sold to several international territories at the ongoing AFM, including Germany, Latin America, CIS, Indonesia and the Middle East.

Foreign pre-sales are usually a good sign that financing is, or will be there for production to begin... that ever-important international market.

Sales are being handled by Intandem Films on a film that will tell the the story of a San Francisco cop whose murder case takes an unexpected turn.

Eddie Flanagan is a San Francisco cop, jaded and cynical. In twenty years on the job, he has seen just about everything - everything that is until a beautiful young lawyer is brutally murdered in one of the city's trendiest neighborhoods. As any good cop knows, murder cases often take unexpected turns, and in Ocean Beach what starts out as a routine homicide investigation quickly turns into something far more frightening and far more bizarre.

Stephen Downing wrote the script, and is co-producer as well.

Screen Daily says the project is now out to actors for casting.

Stay tuned...

Meanwhile, FilmDistrict acquired USA distribution rights to White House thriller Olympus Has Fallen, which stars Gerard ButlerAaron EckhartMorgan Freeman and Angela Bassett.

FilmDistrict will release the film wide on April 52013

I wonder if he's still attached to direct Don Cheadle's Miles Davis project.
