Mickey Rourke is adding another project to his growing slate. According to Variety, Rourke has signed on to star in St. Vincent.

Walter Hill is directing from a script by Cameron Young, which centers on a hitman who returns to his old New York neighborhood to finish off the murder on an informant that went awry. He takes refuge pretending to be a priest, but he then finds himself taking confessions from the man he's supposed to kill.

No production schedule was released for the film.
