Rupert Sanders has signed up to direct thriller The Kill List.

The Snow White And The Huntsman director said it was an "incredible privilege" to take the reins on the big screen adaptation of Frederick Forsyth's book, reported Deadline.

The espionage novel tells the story of a Marine, an Israeli special agent, a terrorist and a young hacker.

The filmmaker said in a statement: "It is a thrilling read and frighteningly accurate. It immerses us in the shadowy worlds of terrorists, spies, private contractors, US and UK special forces. It spans an epic, international world and delves deep into the psychology of its two main characters - 'the hunter' - a US Special Forces Tracker and 'the hunted', an extreme fundamentalist terrorist.

"Forsyth's depth of research and authenticity creates a vivid and frightening story - a nightmare scenario that is all too possible."

The producers are currently meeting with writers and Rupert, 42, will apparently be very involved in that process.

Rupert hit the headlines last year after it emerged he had an affair with Twilight actress Kristen Stewart while he was married to model Liberty Ross.
