Fuqua to direct ‘Kill’

CBS Films' spy thriller based on 2005 novel

Antoine Fuqua will direct spy thriller “Consent to Kill” for CBS Films with Lorenzo DiBonaventura and Nick Wechsler producing.

Script, penned by Jonathan Lemkin, is adapted from the 2005 novel of the same name by Vince Flynn and centered on counterterrorism agent Mitch Rapp.

Studio’s keeping the logline under wraps. In Flynn’s story, Rapp battled a vengeful Saudi billionaire, an ex – East German Stasi spy and a husband-and-wife team of assassins — all while dealing with a knee injury.

Fuqua’s credits include “Training Day,” “Tears of the Sun” and “Shooter.” He most recently directed “Brooklyn’s Finest,” starring Ethan Hawke, Don Cheadle and Richard Gere with Overture due to release March 5.

Lemkin previously adapted Stephen Hunter’s “Point of Impact” for “Shooter.” He also penned “The Devil’s Advocate.”
