Film House Germany's Summerstorm Entertainment will produce the action-thriller with Vandal and Cargo Entertainment.

Action specialist John Moore (A Good Day to Die Hard, Max Payne) has signed on to direct N.O.C., a terrorist-themed thriller.

Dave Matalon and Daniel Scott Gordon penned the script to N.O.C., which follows CIA operative Alek, who discovers that a faction of the agency is actively collaborating with the terrorist cell he was sent to infiltrate. Stuck in a hospital in Berlin, Alek teams up with Corinne, an emergency medical technician who saved his life, to try and find evidence of the conspiracy.

Gabriela Bacher will produce N.O.C. for Film House Germany's Summerstorm Entertainment, together with Navid McIlhargey of Vandal Entertainment and Marina Grasic of Cargo Entertainment. John Moore, Peter Veverka, Christian Angermayer and Klemens Hallmann will executive produce.

N.O.C. is a complex, brain-twisting thriller, a bold, ‎hard-edged story, ripped from the headlines. And John Moore is the creative force for this kind of character-driven action film with an enthralling political undercurrent,” said Bacher and McIlhargey in a statement.

Production is set to begin late summer in Berlin. Radiant Films International/Cargo Entertainment are handling foreign sales, kicking off in Cannes.

Moore, whose next feature will be the crime drama I.T., starring Pierce Brosnan and German actress Anna Friel, is represented by Paradigm.
