Carl Franklin has been appointed as director on City of Night.

The Out of Time helmer will bring the crime thriller to the big screen based on a script by David Chisholm, Deadline reports.

City of Night - described as LA Confidential meets The Departed - tells the story of a rookie police officer in Los Angeles who discovers a web of corruption within the force.

Meyers Media Group and McDonald Entertainment have announced that they will co-finance the film. Brendan McDonald of the former will produce the project with Jesse B'Franklin, while Lawrence Meyers and Randy Dannenberg of the latter will be executive producers.

Franklin has recently found success directing for television, having helmed the pilot episode of TNT's Falling Skies, and the premiere episode of the new Starz show Magic City.

City of Night is yet to be assigned a shooting schedule.
