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."
