Lin is also one of the producers, as is franchise veteran Frank Marshall as well as Jeffrey Weiner and Ben Smith from Captivate. Anthony Peckham wrote an earlier draft.

Any and all plot details are not yet known -- presumably being kept locked deep in the head of an amnesiac Bourne-like sleeper agent.

Baldwin, repped by CAA and Anonymous Content, worked on Warners’ Logan’s Run remake and wrote the original spec Bastille Day, a terrorist thriller being made by Vendome that has Idris Elba attached as one of the leads.
