Ric Roman Waugh to direct action thriller for Emmett/Furla

Brian Tucker pens script for 'Expiration'

Emmett/Furla Films is set to fully finance “Expiration,” a $50 million action-thriller that Ric Roman Waugh (“Snitch”) will direct from a script by Brian Tucker (“Broken City”).

Story follows an ex-CIA operative-turned-assassin who fails to complete his final assignment after being poisoned. With 20 hours to live, he sets out to discover who poisoned him and settle the score before he dies.

EFF co-founders Randall Emmett and George Furla will produce alongside Mark Gordon and Film 360, while Brandon Grimes and Tim Sullivan will serve as co-producers.

Emmett/Furla acquired Tucker’s script last year in a seven-figure deal and recently financed the Tucker-scripted thriller “Broken City,” starring Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe. Twentieth Century Fox will release the pic on Jan. 18. EFF recently reteamed with Wahlberg on “2 Guns” and is currently working with the actor on Peter Berg’s “Lone Survivor,” both of which will be distributed by Universal. Like “2 Guns,” EFF’s thriller “The Tomb” will debut in latter half of 2013. Company recently produced David Ayer’s “End of Watch,” which opened atop the box office en route to a $39 million domestic haul thus far.

Waugh, who directed the Stephen Dorff-Val Kilmer pic “Felon,” recently wrapped Dwayne Johnson starrer “Snitch,” which Summit Entertainment will release Feb. 22. He’s repped by WME, Management 360 and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern.
