Morel, Penn Team On “Prone Gunman”

French filmmaker Pierre Morel (“Taken”) is in negotiations to direct Sean Penn in the action thriller “Prone Gunman” at Silver Pictures and Studio Canal.

Based on the novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette, the story centers on an international operative named Martin Terrier (Penn) who is betrayed by his own organization. He ends up on the run in a relentless game of cat-and-mouse across Europe.

Peter Travis adapted the script, while Joel Silver and Andrew Rona will produce. Shooting aims to kick off in the Spring.
