The movie will also explore a personal relationship between the two snipers, as well as force Fairburne to make a choice between “the fate of the war and confronting his deepest secret.”
Peyton, who also directed disaster flick San Andreas as well as video game adaptation Rampage, will be joined by producer Jean-Julien Baronnet of Marla Studios, who previously produced the Assassin’s Creed movie and Taken. Additionally, Jason Kingsley, the CEO of Rebellion, will also be a producer.
“We wanted to twist and tweak the viewers’ expectations as to what they’d get from a movie like this,” Kingsley told Variety.
Currently, no studio is attached, but Baronnet said that the aim is to establish a global deal with a Hollywood studio or a streaming platform.
