Idris Elba and Zoe Saldana are in negotiations to join “The Losers” for Warner Bros.Pictures and Silver Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.
An adaptation of the Vertigo/DC Comics, the story follows a Special Forces team betrayed by its handler and left for dead. The “losers” regroup in the interest of revenge, the opportunity to remove their names from a secret CIA death list and to conduct covert operations against the CIA and its interests.
Elba will play a character named Roque, the group’s scarred second-in-command who is motivated by money. Saldana will be Aisha, a cold-blooded loose cannon. Jeffrey Dean Morgan also stars.
Peter Berg and James Vanderbilt worked on the script while Sylvain White is directing.
