Michael Schwartz and Tyler Nilson, known for The Peanut Butter Falcon, are attached to direct the Riders of Justice remake. The producers of the film comprise Shawn Levy, Dan Levine and Dan Cohen of 21 Laps. Riders of Justice's Sisse Graum Jorgensen and Anders Kjaeurhauge serve as executive producers, while James Myers oversees the project for Lionsgate.

Anders Thomas Jensen directed the Danish film, starring Mads Mikkelsen, based on a story Jensen wrote alongside Nik Arcel. Released in 2020, the film won the appreciation of critics and audiences for its off-kilter action and original tone. It follows the return of a deployed soldier to take care of his daughter after an accident that took the life of his wife. However, when a group of experts in statistics allege foul play, the soldier goes on a vengeful mission, alongside an eclectic group, to find those responsible.

Schwartz and Nilson's most recent work Los Frikis earned the biggest jury recognition at the Miami Film Festival.
