Eric Bana is expected to executive produce the thriller "Dubai."
Set up at Paramount Pictures, which acquired Adam Cozad's spec script, "Dubai" will be produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Dubai" is a passion project for Bana, though the trade paper doesn't clarify if the "Munich" star's involvement will go beyond producing.
The plot reportedly focuses on a young American economist working in Dubai. His life gets thrown for a loop when he becomes involved in an international attack on the U.S. economy.
Paramount-based production credits for di Bonaventura include "Transformers" and the upcoming "Stardust" and "Nowhereland."
Last seen, by two or three people, in the poker drama "Lucky You," Bana has "The Other Boleyn Girl" on tap for release later this year. He's set to star opposite Rachel McAdams in "The Time Traveler's Wife," which will begin shooting in September.
