Brett Ratner's next film HUNTING EICHMANN gets a Screenwriter

Brett Ratner is in the process of prepping up for his next feature film project Hunting Eichman. The film will be much different than his latest comedy heist film Tower Heist in that it's not a comedy at all. Hunting Eichman is a thriller based on the true account of Israeli agents who secretly entered pro-Nazi Argentina to capture Adolph Eichmann, known as the architect of the final solution. Screenwriter Ann Peacock (The Killing Room, The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe) has been hired to write the script. 

According to Deadline, "Eichmann had eluded capture for nearly two decades, until the Mossad picked up his trail and dispatched a team of agents to find him. Some of them were Holocaust survivors themselves, and the eight agents risked everything to bring Eichmann back to face trial in Israel, where he was hanged in 1962."

This sounds like it could end up being be a great film, which makes me wonder why Ratner is attached to direct it. What do you all think?
