Jeffrey Nachmanoff (“Traitor,” “Replicas”) has signed on to direct the Jackie Chan-led action-thriller “Five Against a Bullet” for Sony Pictures. Chan recently came onboard the project which once had Bruce Willis attached to star.
The high-concept project centers on five world-weary bodyguards assigned to protect a Mexican politician after his father is murdered by a cartel, ahead of an election.
Matt Corman and Chris Ord (“Covert Affairs”) are rewriting a script previously worked on by Joe Carnahan and Alex Litvak. Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Jordan Schur and Chan are producing.
