Actor Michael B. Jordan will star in and produce Lionsgates film adaptation of assassin story The Silver Bear. The makers are yet to announce the director of the project.
The Silver Bear is based on the book series by Derek Haas, the screenwriter for Wanted and 3:10 to Yuma.
The novel is about an assassin named Columbus -- also called the Silver Bear-- who tracks a powerful politician with presidential aspirations.
"The Silver Bear is the kind of story that needs to be experienced on the big screen and Michael is the perfect movie star to inhabit the skin of this dynamic character and take us into the cinematic world of Columbus," says Lionsgate Motion Picture Group chairman Joe Drake.
He also adds that,"We're incredibly honoured that Michael and Nickel City chose Lionsgate to partner with in bringing this exciting property to life."
