Twentieth Century Fox has acquired the pitch “Men Who Kill” with Michael B. Jordan attached to star.
TJ Fixman would write the script with Greg Berlanti producing along with Sarah Schecter.
The film is described as a CIA thriller with remaining plot details being kept under wraps.
Fox paid in the six-figure range for the pitch and the sale makes sense given Fox’s growing relationship with rising star Jordan, who is set to play Johnny Storm in Fox’s “Fantastic Four.”
Jordan, who is repped by WME and the Schiff Co., was most recently seen in Focus Features’ “That Awkward Moment.” Besides “Fantastic Four,” he has a handful of projects in development including a “Rocky” spinoff called “Creed.”
Fixman recently sold “One Night On The Hudson” to Universal with Mary Parent producing, Seth Gordon directing and Jason Sudekis and Charlie Day starring, “The Lost” for New Line and 21 Laps, and “Gargoyles” for Disney with Lauren Schuler Donner producing.
Fixman and Berlanti are also repped by WME.
