Veteran filmmaker Jon Avnet has signed on to direct an action thriller called "Second World," which he promises will be a "ride from beginning to end." The concept sounds solid, Jon, so we’re holding you to that promise.

From Variety: "Jon Avnet is set to direct action thriller "Second World," which Emmett/Furla Films will produce with Avent’s Brooklyn Films.

Avent, who is in post-production on Al Pacino starrer "88 Minutes," is skedded to begin shooting this fall. Cast has not been set.

"Second," from a spec script by Scott King, revolves around a top assassin — and mother — who must stop a deadly virus from spreading. But in order to halt the potential pandemic, she must team up with the virus’ creator, who also is her target."

Avnet’s previous films include "Fried Green Tomatoes" (1991), "The War" (1994), and "Up Close and Personal" (1996). More recently he produced "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow."
