Arnold Kopelson will produce with Kopelson Entertainment partner Anne Kopelson.
The thriller centers around the plot to assassinate a political figure. The script was acquired by the Kopelsons through the Equus Media Development Co. and developed independently.
“Amy has literally functioned as our partner in the development of this screenplay,” Kopelson told Daily Variety.
Kopelson set up the multimillion-dollar development fund with Houston-based Equus Total Return in 2007 so that he didn’t have to wait for a studio to say yes. Since then, he has acquired nine scripts.
Wadlow most recently directed “Never Back Down” for Summit Entertainment.
