The synopsis reads: “Sam Hayden as an assassin of assassins, completing every assignment – no matter how dangerous with ruthless precision. Sam’s next assignment is to take out his legendarily ruthless predecessor, Charles Managold (Dolph Lundgren), who has fallen for his beautiful exotic mark and is now on the run with her. Sam is cold, professional and there is nothing that could sway him from his missing, not even the love of his life, Nona Messenger (Lina Maya) that is until Sam comes face to face, fist to fist with his legendary target and shocks himself by not taking out Managold. Now pursued by the world’/s number one hitman, Isaac (Michael Jai White), along with his own people, Sam must team up with Managold to take them on and stay alive.”

Also execing for BondIt Media Capital are COO Luke Taylor and SVP of Business Development Grady Craig. Production is targeted to begin later this month.

“We’re excited to work with Dolph, Michael, and Shane again on a strong title that has sold well in Cannes amidst a difficult market”, noted Helderman. “Partnering with Saban on the North American release continues our extensive work with them spanning dozens of titles over the years.”

Archstone recently produced The Best Man starring Lundgren and Luke Wilson, and distributed American Farmer with Peter Dinklage.
