The story is adapted from the Vince Flynn novel of the same name, centering on Mitch Rapp, a young man who joins the CIA after his girlfriend died in a terrorist attack. Bruce Willis will play a CIA agent who mentors Rapp. The book is the 11th in Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series, although this story goes back to the beginning, showing how he first became involved with the covert agency.
Jeffrey Nachmanoff is directing from a screenplay by Mike Finch. We reported in February that he is taking over from Edward Zwick, who adapted the book with Marshall Herskovitz. At the time, it wasn't known if the studio would still use their initial draft, although now, with Mike Finch involved, it seems they are starting from scratch.
