Gavin O’Connor (‘The Accountant,’ ‘Warrior’) is to take the helm of the World War II drama ‘Atlantic Wall,’ based on the Black List script by ‘Deadfall’ screenwriter Zach Dean.

With Bradley Cooper attached to star, the drama tells the story of an American paratrooper stranded behind enemy lines, hours before the D-Day invasion, who is tasked with delivering intelligence critical to the outcome of the war. He is also compelled to fulfil a promise to protect the young son of a murdered ally.

‘Atlantic Wall’ will be produced by Imperative Entertainment’s Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas, along with Adam Kolbrenner.
