Andrew Baldwin wrote the screenplay that follows a U.S. operative (Idris Elba) who is tasked with making a young American boy "disappear" to avoid any embarrassment after he is linked as a prime suspect in a Paris metro bombing. After several more attacks take place, the agent realizes that the young boy is innocent, although he may also be the only link to the actual perpetrator.
Vendome's Philippe Rousselet is producing alongside Anonymous Content's Steve Golin, Bard Dorros and David Kanter. Vendome is fully financing the project and producing, although a director has not been attached at this time. It isn't clear when production may begin.
