No details were given for Lynn Collins and James Belushi's characters.
Gonzalo López-Gallego (Open Grave, Apollo 18) is directing from a script by Nils Lyew. William Green, Aaron Ginsburg and Andy Horwitz are producing for Atlas Independent, an affiliate of Charles Roven's Atlas Entertainment. Shooting is scheduled to begin on April 14.
