Samuel L Jackson to headline hitman-thriller from the directors of Focus
The film is written by Matthew Stone, who co-wrote Soul Men, starring Jackson
Hollywood veteran Samuel L Jackson will be playing the lead in a yet-to-be-titled thriller, which will be helmed by Focus and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot directors John Requa and Glenn Ficarra.
According to reports, Jackson will play a former hitman Morris Stokes, who is not your typical retiree.
When his nephew, Leslie, makes a stupid mistake, Morris gets a call from his old boss and must negotiate one last job: either help the kid recover the lost money, or put a bullet in him.
Morris drags Leslie around town, making him clean up his mess while pontificating on some of life's lessons along the way.
The film is written by Matthew Stone, who co-wrote Soul Men, starring Jackson. John Davis of The Predator franchise fame will be producing the project.
