Madden in talks to helm 'The Debt'
The film is a remake of the 2007 Israeli thriller HaHov, which follows three Mossad agents who chase a Nazi war criminal across Europe in the '60s.
Stardust pair Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman penned the screenplay. Vaughn's next directing project is rumoured to be a film version of Mark Millar's comic series Kick-Ass.
Madden has previously helmed Mrs Brown, Shakespeare In Love,
