Niels Arden Oplev is set to direct The Last Photograph


May 11, 2011

Niels Arden Oplev is set to direct the Afghanistan-set action-thriller, The Last Photograph, in 2012, with Sean Penn and Christian Bale playing the two leads.

The script, written by Kurt Johnstad, is based on an idea by Zack Snyder.  An ex-special ops soldier (Penn) arrives in Afghanistan to find the gunmen who killed his brother's family.  He enlists the sole survivor of the bloody attack (Bale), a war photographer who captured the event on camera, to help him find who is responsible.

Niels has just finished shooting The Rememberer, a pilot for CBS written by John Bellucci.
