20th Century Fox has acquired the pitch Men Who Kill, with Michael B. Jordan attached to star.
The project will be written by T.J. Fixman, which is described as a CIA thriller, although no specific plot details were given. Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schecter are attached to produce, with the studio paying over six figures for the pitch. No director is attached at this time.
The deal strengthens Michael B. Jordan's relationship with 20th Century Fox, after starring in the low-budget hit Chronicle and signing on to play Johnny Storm in The Fantastic Four reboot for the studio. He is also attached to star in Creed, a spin-off of the Rocky franchise that reunites him with Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler. He most recently starred in That Awkward Moment, and he also has a role in the upcoming crime thriller Triple Nine.
T.J. Fixman sold his script One Night on the Hudson to Universal, which has Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis attached to star, and Seth Gordon set to direct. Other projects in development include Ratchet & Clank, The Lost and Gargoyles.
