Left Bank Pictures is reportedly developing a feature film based on the cult hit Cinemax action series “Strike Back”.
Left Bank is said to have a deal to develop the film with European pay TV giant Sky. Stars Sullivan Stapleton and Philip Winchester would likely reprise their roles if the film goes forward, though both are currently committed to American TV series “Blindspot” and “The Player” respectively.
Producers are also in early talks with Cinemax to get them onboard too, and if approved the movie would shoot in South America next year and potentially be the launchpad to an ongoing film franchise.
Based on SAS soldier Chris Ryan’s novel, the story follows a secretive branch of the British Defense Intelligence service who take on high risk missions around the globe.
