According to The Hollywood Reporter Michael Ross is writing the action thriller Disavowed for CBS Films.

Originally, the film was written by Philip Shelby. The film is being produced by Irwin Winkler (Rocky).

The film follows a group of U.S. military prisoners who are sent to the African nation of Eritrea. Their objective is to find a missing bio-chemical weapon. If they can accomplish this, the prisoners will have their sentences commuted.

"It's a really exciting and simple premise," states Ross. "I want to honor that and make a really fun and engaging action movie. That's the goal, is to make it moment-to-moment exciting, take advantage of the location and the simplicity of the plot and the opportunity to work within a really fun genre, which is the man-on-a-mission movie."
