Aram Rappaport is directing from a script he wrote and helped develop with Shor. The two began developing the script during the shoot for Shor’s “The Paperboy.”
Story follows an ex-Wall Street man, played by Grillo whom the Secretary of the Treasury enlists to thwart a cyber attack that threatens to derail the American economy. With the help of his wife, he recruits his rag tag team of misfits, and prepares to save the world from total financial implosion.
“Aram is one of the new breed of writer directors. For me to get on board with him was a no brainer … he has it all as an emerging talent,” Shor said. “The recent events transpiring within our federal government make this film topical and poignant. I think we’re all wondering what’s going to happen to our money.”
Production begins next month.
Grillo, who is repped by CAA and Management 360, has several pics set to bow in the next year, including “Homefront” with Jason Statham and James Franco and Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”
The UTA and Untitled Entertainment-repped Driver can be seen next in “Return to Zero.”
Rappaport is repped Gersh and manager Margrit Polak.

The ’80s live on at The CW: modest-performing “The Carrie Diaries” will return next season, along with spy drama “Nikita.” And the network is adding four dramas to its 2013-14 schedule, most rapt in the sci-fi world.
That takes “Nikita,” which averages around 1 million viewers, into its fourth season — and according to the show’s executive producer Craig Silverstein, it will be an abbreviated run, possibly indicating a final season for the show. The network will announce episode counts — and its fate — next week at their Upfronts presentation in New York. “The Carrie Diaries,” the “Sex and the City” prequel, also averaged around 1 million viewers and will head into a second season. The silver lining that worked in favor of both shows getting another season is they perform well on Hulu.
Meanwhile, joining the previously ordered “Vampire Diaries” spinoff “The Originals” for next season are “The Tomorrow People,” “The 100,” ‘Reign” and “Star-Crossed.”
“The Tomorrow People,” a reboot of the British ’70s sci-fi series, centers on, naturally, a group of young people — ones that possess special powers (teleportation, telepathy) and represent the next stage in human evolution. And as expected, they work together to fend off evil. The series comes “Arrow’s” Greg Berlanti and “The Vampire Diaries'” Julie Plec — the latter of which seems to be an enchanting force for the network, upping her tally to three shows on the CW.
If that group doesn’t sound fun to hang with, maybe a spaceship and a nuclear war is more your style? “The 100” is a post-nuclear war drama, in which a spaceship sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth to look into re-colonizing.
And what would the CW be without a little young love? “Reign” focuses on 15-year-old Mary, Queen of Scots, as she arrives in France and is betrothed to Prince Frances. There are rivals, sex and period costumes! Then there’s “Star-Crossed.” Previously titled “Oxygen,” it tells the love story of a human girl (played by “Friday Night Lights” alum Aimee Teegarden) and an alien boy (“90210’s” Matt Lanter).

The cast of Divergent has expanded by three. Maggie Q, Zoe Kravitz and Ansel Elgort will be joining Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) in the feature film adaptation of the first book in Veronica Roth’s young adult series. The books are similar in tone to The Hunger Games and have a loyal (and large) fan following.
The plot: “Divergent is a thrilling adventure centered around the monumental choice of deciding who you are and discovering who you can be. Set in a future where America is divided into five ideological factions to stabilize society and uphold peace, every citizen must choose a permanent faction at age 16 – either their own or another. Struggling to survive her initiation into the most aggressive and physically demanding of the factions, Beatrice Prior must uncover her true hidden strengths and risk her family, her new found love, and her very own life to defuse a mysterious conspiracy which could change the balance of power forever.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Maggie Q will play ‘Tori,’ one of the people who helps divide the citizens into factions. Kravitz will play a member of the Dauntless faction who becomes a friend of Tris (played by Woodley). And Elgort will handle the key role of Woodley’s character’s twin brother.

When Nikita (Maggie Q, “Live Free or Die Hard,” “Mission Impossible 3?) was a troubled teenager on death row, she was “recruited” by a secret U.S. black ops program known only as Division. They faked her execution and turned her into an assassin. Nikita never lost her humanity, and when she learned that Division was a corrupt organization, she went rogue, exposing their covert operations, destroying their plans, righting their wrongs.
Two years later, she finds herself working for a new Division, fighting alongside a team of allies she’s gathered throughout her adventures. They have vowed to clean up the mess left behind by the old Division – rogue spies, violent assassins – Nikita is hunting down killers just as skilled as she is.
In her campaign to end Division’s legacy, Nikita teamed with Michael (Shane West, “ER,” “Once and Again,” “A Walk to Remember”). He’s the man who trained her – and the man who loves her. A stalwart soldier in the fight, Michael is determined to build a life for himself and Nikita, a life beyond the turmoil of their day jobs.
