I’m not too huge on anything Paul Blart. On that note, we can at least count on actor Kevin James to adapt to other roles that might be appealing to moviegoers, which will hopefully be the case for his next action comedy endeavor, True Memoirs Of An International Assassin from PalmStar Media and Global Film Group.
Kick Ass 2 helmer Jeff Wadlow will direct with a story that sees James dodging bullets and bad guys as a lowly accountant and would-be author on the run in Belize when the sudden misprinted publication and popularity of his fictional assassin novel deigns him as the living subject of his own book, forcing him to take on his literary persona, “Colt Rodgers” in order to save the day when he gets embroiled in an assassination conspiracy. PalmStar Media and Merced Media are financing the film which takes the international market at Cannes next week.
Filming begins this September while James is set to appear in Chris Columbus’s sci-fi comedy epic, Pixels this July.
Hopefully this won’t mean more Blart, but that’s just me.
