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.

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