Assassin’s Club reads like one heck of a name we’re getting for an action title hailing from the latest deal inked between Film Bridge International and Dublin-based Merlin Films. Steve Saint Leger, credited for TV series Vikings and co-directing James Mather’s Guy Pearce thriller, Lockout, has boarded the project to direct
MORGAN GAINES is the world’s most elite assassin. While on the final mission of his career, he suddenly finds himself fighting for his own life when another mystery assassin targets him. He soon discovers that several of the world’s top assassins—including himself—have all been contracted to kill each other in a deadly game orchestrated by an unknown mastermind. Morgan races to pick off the other assassins, and he must defend not only his own life, but also the lives of those he holds most dear: his girlfriend SOPHIE and their unborn child.
Merlin’s Kieran Corrigan and Film Bridge founder and CEO Ellen Wander are producing. Cast and further production details remain pending. (DEADLINE)
