While we wait for developments on a Den Of Thieves sequel, Deadline has it on good terms that it’s director, Christian Gudegast, will leave another mark on his film credentials with Mafia X. This one is based on his own pitch and is being described as “high concept action thriller inspired by the true stories of organized crime groups banding together to fight terrorism.”
Gudegast is best known for screenwriting A Man Apart and London Has Fallen, and for rolling out from the top of 2018 with upwards of $80 million dollars for his directing debut on Den Of Thieves for STX Entertainment. He will direct from a script he will also co-pen with JP Davis (upcoming Naja) after just closing a deal with Thunder Road Pictures and Pioneer Pictures.
Basil Iwanyk, Robert Kravis, and Karl Herrmann are producing.
