Lorenzo di Bonaventura has about 10 films in development, including several sequels and bigscreen adaptations.

Notable projects include the Antoine Fuqua-directed “Consent to Kill.” The film centers on Mitch Rapp, a CIA counterterrorism agent featured in several novels by author Vince Flynn. Gerard Butler, Matthew Fox and Colin Farrell have reportedly been up for the role.

“The Associate” will also bring a character from book to box office; it’s an adaptation of the John Grisham novel. Shia LaBeouf is signed on to star.

But di Bonaventura also has some fun and fantastical tricks up his sleeve: He’s working on “Moscow” (which brings back classic character Jack Ryan to the screen), a “G.I. Joe” sequel, “Beverly Hills Cop IV,” “Asteroids” (based on the Atari videogame) and a live-action version of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”
