STX is behind the project.

David Leitch and the writers behind the blockbuster creature feature The Meg, Jon and Erich Hoeber, are partnering for the action-thriller Fast and Loose, setting up the project at STX, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The storyline follows John Riley, a man who wakes up in Tijuana after being left for dead with absolutely no memory. As he follows a string of clues to uncover his identity, he discovers that he’s been living two different lives: one, as a super-successful crime kingpin, surrounded by beautiful women and expensive toys; and the other as an undercover CIA agent, but with a puny salary, no family or home life whatsoever and zero trappings of success. The problem is, he can't remember which of these two personas is his true identity. 

Hobbs & Shaw filmmaker Leitch will produce under his 87 North banner with Kelly McCormick. Annie Marter of 87North will executive produce. Drew Simon, Kevin Sauer and Sam Brown will oversee for STX.

A director is not yet attached.

Leitch and McCormick, whose joint credits include Atomic Blonde and Deadpool 2, are repped by WME and Gang Tyre.

The Hoebers are also behind the Red films, starring Bruce Willis. They are repped by Verve Talent.
