Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to topline the ensemble comedy “Why We’re Killing Gunther” at MadRiver Pictures and StarStream Media.
SNL regular Taran Killam has penned the script and will make his directorial debut on the film. He’ll also star alongside his wife Cobie Smulders and actors like Paul Brittain, Kumail Nanjiani, Randall Park, Ryan Gaul and his SNL co-star Bobby Moynihan.
The story focuses on a group of eccentric international assassins who become fed up with Gunther, the world’s greatest hitman who also happens to be an arrogant show-off, and decide to kill him. Their master plan becomes a series of embarrassing encounters as Gunther always appears one step ahead.
Killam, Kim Leadford, Ash Sarohia and Steve Squillante will produce and filming is slated to begin in June.
