Hardwicke engages in Dot War


Catherine Hardwicke, director of Thirteen and the first Twilight , has been approached to direct Dot War .

It’s being touted as an action-adventure flick, and features a video-game programmer who is enlisted by the government to use virtual technology to take on terrorists.

Which sounds like quite a departure for Hardwicke, who is best known for her indieified roots in intimate, if iron-fisted, drama.

The director is also attached to a modern-day version of Hamlet , which would star Emile Hirsch, and she is also currently casting her Red Riding Hood update, The Girl With The Red Riding Hood .

Pajiba broke the Dot War news, and note that Hardwicke’s involvement in the film is entirely based on how much she likes the script rewrite.

Dot War ? Or simply dotty? Can Hardwicke pull off an all-out action flick?
