According to Deadline, Point Break remake director Ericson Core has signed on to direct The Claim, a drama film that doesn’t sound like it would be an especially big deal if not for the fact that it was written by La La Land’s Damien Chazelle. The movie is about a father with a “criminal background” whose daughter gets kidnapped, but while trying to track her down, a different couple shows up and makes “mysterious claims” that the child actually belongs to them. That makes it sound like the other couple was probably behind the kidnapping, but maybe the daughter was taken by a third party, and the criminal dad has to fight with the mysterious couple to prove that she’s really his daughter and not theirs.

Beyond Point Break, Core also directed the sports movie Invincible and worked as a cinematographer on The Fast And The Furious and the Ben Affleck Daredevil movie. Casting for The Claim is apparently underway now, and production is set to begin later this year.
