While Relativity may not be the answer to all of Hollywood's prayers, the upstart distrib is putting some movies into production. CEO Ryan Kavanaugh has hired respected veteran A-list director Philip Noyce (Salt, Clear and Present Danger) to direct Hunter Killer, set to start shooting late this year.

Jamie Moss (X-Men: First Class, Escape from New York), John Kolvenbach (Coney Island) and Arne Schmidt (Chain Reaction) adapted the novel Firing Point by George Wallace Cdr. USN Ret. and Don Keith about an untested submarine captain who joins a Navy SEAL team to rescue the imprisoned president of Russia and stop a rogue Russian General who is bent on launching World War III.

Kavanaugh will produce with Original Film’s Neal Moritz (Battle: Los Angeles) and Toby Jaffe (Prom Night), with Relativity’s production chief Tucker Tooley as Exec producer. Relativity recently signed Julia Roberts to star in their Snow White project.
