Ron Howard To Direct Castro-Kill Tale “Fixer”

Ron Howard is reportedly set to direct the feature “The Fixer” as his next project for Paramount Pictures and Imagine Entertainment.

Tyler Hisel (“Treadstone”) penned the script which is based on the incredible true story of a disgraced FBI agent who, at the height of the Cold War, is tapped by the CIA to lead a ragtag team of CIA operatives and Chicago mobsters on an unlikely mission to try to assassinate Fidel Castro.

Howard, who recently finished Netflix’s “Hillbilly Elegy” coming later this year, will produce with Brian Grazer, Bradley Cooper, Todd Phillips and Andrew Panay.
