CBS Films has picked up the action pitch Vengeance from scribe Robert Mark Kamen.

According to Variety, in the vein of Taken, the 2008 sleeper hit Kamen wrote with Luc Besson, Vengeance is "a contemporary revenge love story -- what happens when violence meets love," Kamen said. "The main characters are 20 and Italian, and there are themes that echo films like 'The Godfather.' It's about family loyalty and how much someone owes their family and the past. It's not set in the gangster milieu but just outside it."

No production date has been set.
