Michael Ross (“Turistas,” “Jar City”) will rewrite the action thriller “Disavowed” for CBS Films says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story deals with a group of military prisoners in the U.S. secretly dispatched to the African nation of Eritrea to retrieve a bio-chemical weapon that has gone missing.
If the group is successful in keeping it out of the wrong hands, the convicts’ prison sentences will be commuted.
Philip Shelby penned an early draft and Irwin Winkler is producing. Ross remains attached to scripts for “Cartagena” and the remake of “Near Dark”.
