John Moore (“A Good Day To Die Hard”) is on board to direct the $30 million action feature “The Englishman” at Foresight Unlimited and Envision Entertainment.
William Wisher penned the script based on the book “Once A Pilgrim” by former SAS officer turned mercenary Will Scully.
The story recounts the time Scully rescued innocent civilians trapped inside an African hotel during a coup.
Moore, Mark Damon, James Gibb, Benedict Carver and Tim Peternel will produce. Shooting begins early next year in South Africa.
