Production was scheduled to begin this summer, but it isn't known when shooting will begin now, as Legendary and Universal begin the search to replace Will Smith. Noomi Rapace entered negotiations to co-star earlier this month, although it isn't known if her deal is finalized yet.
The story is based on Marcus Sakey's novel, which is set in a world where a rare group of people known as "brilliants" are born with superhuman abilities. The plot follows a government agent with incredible tracking abilities, who is assigned to find a terrorist hiding out in Wyoming. He comes to learn that this villainous character has his own set of special abilities, as he tries to create a civil war. No details were given for Noomi Rapace's character.
