Gerard McMurray (“The First Purge,” “Burning Sands”) has been set to write and direct the Michael B. Jordan-led action thriller “The Silver Bear” at Lionsgate and Nickel City Pictures.
Based on Derek Haas’ best-selling novel series, Jordan will play a hitman named Columbus who takes targets from drug dealers to Czech crime lords and is the most feared and respected assassin in the criminal underworld.
Vishal Rungta, Mark Fasano and Ankur Rungta will produce. McMurray produced “Fruitvale Station” which served as Jordan’s breakthrough role.
