Freestyle Releasing has nabbed domestic theatrical rights to writer-producer-star Rick Yune’s martial arts flick “The Fifth Commandment” and plans a wide release next March says The Hollywood Reporter.
Yune (“Die Another Day”) plays a trained assassin who turns down an assignment to kill a pop singer (Dania Ramirez) because her bodyguard is his half brother (Bokeem Woodbine). The siblings soon find themselves targeted in Bangkok by every top assassin in the world, forcing them to rely on the training of their tough father (Keith David).
Yune, a veteran martial artist, wrote the English-language original screenplay. Director John Z. Lee helmed the project.
