The Film Department has picked up Jeff Morris’s Black List-nominated action-comedy spec script “True Memoirs of an International Assassin” says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story focuses on an accountant who writes a novel about the life he wishes he had, that of a fearless assassin. He sells the book, the publisher labels it a memoir, and the world comes to believe he is his alter ego.
When he goes on vacation to Belize, he finds himself coerced into killing the country’s prime minister and must now become the hero he’s always written about but never dreamed he’d be.
Michael De Luca, Alissa Phillips, Mark Gill and Robert Katz will produce.
