Antoine Fuqua is set to direct the spy thriller Consent to Kill for CBS Films.

According to Variety, the script was penned by Jonathan Lemkin, and is adapted from the 2005 novel of the same name by Vince Flynn and centered on counterterrorism agent Mitch Rapp.

The studio is keeping the plot under wraps. In Flynn's story, Rapp battled a vengeful Saudi billionaire, an ex - East German Stasi spy and a husband-and-wife team of assassins -- all while dealing with a knee injury.

No production date has been set.
