Deadline is exclusively reporting that Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson and Maggie Q are set to star in Martin Campbell’s upcoming action-thriller The Asset.
The Asset is set to focus on Rembrandt and Anna, two of the world’s premier assassins who share a mysterious past from Vietnam. For years, they traversed the globe competing for high-profile contracts. But when Anna’s mentor Moody is murdered, she and Rembrandt must form an uneasy alliance and return to Vietnam to track down his killer.
Millennium Films are handling world sales and will launch the project at the AFM this week. Millennium Films Jeffrey Greenstein released a statement saying:
The Asset is the whole package, and we are excited to bring Richard Wenk’s masterful, muscular script to life with the all-star talent of Michael, Samuel, and Maggie. Having a great director like Martin Campbell at the helm will make all the difference in turning this into a big, stylish, and action-packed thrill ride.
The film is being written by Richard Wenk, with Arthur Sarkissian to serve as producer alongside Moshe Diamant and Rob Van Norden. Avi Lerner will serve as executive producer alongside Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson, Jeffrey Greenstein, Jonathan Yunger, Gareth West, Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman. Lonnie Ramati will serve as co-executive producer.
Production for The Asset is scheduled to commence on the 8th January 2020, with filming taking place in London, Bucharest and DaNang, Vietnam.
