Sean Bean Hunts Across A “Scorched Earth”

Sean Bean is set to star in the post-apocalyptic action thriller “Scorched Earth” says Deadline.

Set after an environmental collapse caused billions to die, mankind has finally re-established a rudimentary society with a new set of laws for the ravaged wastelands.

Bean plays bounty hunter named Atticus Gage who is very similar to the criminals he hunts. He is soon presented with the bounty of a lifetime, and goes off in search of the most wanted criminal in these badlands.

“24” and “Hawaii Five-0” executive producer Brad Turner will direct from a screenplay by Bobby Mort and Kevin Leeson. Leeson and Jamie Goehring will produce.
