Writer Hired For Refn’s “Button Man”

Matt Cook (“By Way Of Helena”) is the latest scribe to come onboard the film adaptation of “Button Man: The Killing Game” for DreamWorks.

The story centers on Harry Exton, a hired gun who decides to abandon a death match that gambling millionaires have set up to amuse themselves.

In the process of opting out, he finds he might not only have to kill his fellow contestants but also the guys pulling the strings.

Hilary Seitz and Barry Levy previously worked on the script for this adaptation of the ultra-violent graphic novel.

“Drive” director Nicolas Winding Refn is attached to direct. Roger Kass, Josh Braun, Mark Sourian and Michael De Luca are producing.
