Sheldon Turner, who wrote "The Longest Yard," "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning," "X-Men Origins: Magneto," and also co-wrote "Up in the Air" with director Jason Reitman, will make his directorial debut on a thriller titled "By Virtue Fall."

Turner wrote the script for the movie, which is police thriller about a young ATF agent Matt Vinette, who is framed by his partner , a corrupt cop Danny Sloane, for a crime he did not commit and sent to prison. When he gets an early release from prison, he seeks to exact revenge on his former partner.

Nicolas Chartier, the producer of "The Hurt Locker" who was banned from the recent Oscars for e-mails he sent urging academy members to vote for his movie, will work with Creative Artists Agency to finance the movie, which he will produce through his Voltage Picture banner. Jennifer Klein will also co-produce with Turner.

Shooting is scheduled to begin in September.
