The movie - to be directed by 'Incendies' helmer Denis Viilleneuve - follows a small-town carpenter, Keller, who takes the law into his own hands after cops fail to find his kidnapped daughter and best friend and in the process runs up against the detective assigned to the case.
''Denis' rare directing gifts are superbly matched to this material, that is both challenging and explores complex themes in a commercially appealing narrative.''
Aaron Guzikowski has written The Script and 8:38 Productions' Kira Davis and Madhouse Entertainment's Adam Kolbrenner will also produce alongside Alcon's producers, while Ed McDonnell and John Stark will executive produce.
'Prisoners' is set for release in November 2013.
