Annapurna Pictures’ Megan Ellison, 24 year-old daughter of billionaire Larry Ellison, will provide sole financing for Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal‘s untitled next film, which Variety describes as “the true story of a U.S. military black ops mission.” Cameras will roll in early summer with Bigelow directing and Boal having written the script.
Their long-planned Triple Frontier project, a larger-budgeted, big-star action thriller for Paramount, will presumably go sometime in 2012.
Ellison’s investment in True Grit bought her an exec producer credit. Annapurna will also reportedly finance and produce John Hillcoat‘s The Wettest County. a prohibition-era pic to star Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf.
