Alchemy is closing a deal to acquire “Kill List” director Ben Wheatley’s new action thriller “Free Fire” for a deal worth over $3 million. Martin Scorsese executive produced the late 1970s Boston-set thriller.
Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, Jack Reynor, Sharlto Copley, Michael Smiley, Sam Riley and Noah Taylor star.
Larson plays a woman who has brokered a meeting in a deserted warehouse between two Irishmen (Murphy and Smiley) and a gang (led by Hammer and Copley) who are selling them a stash of guns.
But when shots are fired in the handover, a heart-stopping game of survival ensues. Wheatley and Amy Jump co-wrote the script.
