Laurence Fishburne, Nick Jonas to headline The Blacksmith

Published: 20th May 2020

Actors Laurence Fishburne and Nick Jonas will headline the upcoming action thriller, The Blacksmith, which will be helmed by Taken director Pierre Morel.

Bankrolled by AGC Studios, The Blacksmith will be made from the screenplay by Ben Ripley of Source Code fame. According to Variety, the project is based on a critically-acclaimed 2011 graphic novel of the same name from Kickstart Comics by Malik Evans and Richard Sparkman.

Jonas will portray Wes Loomis, a 'Blacksmith' who is the intelligence community's go-to weapons expert.

"When his clandestine lab is destroyed and his colleagues murdered, Wes must go on the run with only his unique set of technological skills and the help of a brilliant, young CIA analyst Noelle Hazlitt to keep him alive. They seek out Mather (Fishburne) a retired blacksmith and Wes' mentor, to guide them on a journey that keeps this improbable pair one step ahead of their pursuers," the official logline reads.

The project will be produced by Jon Shestack in collaboration with Kickstart Productions' Jason Netter and Jeremy Stein.
