'Hitman: Agent 47' Director Tackling Alien Invasion Movie for Lionsgate (Exclusive)

Aleksander Bach, the director of the upcoming action movie Hitman: Agent 47, is coming on board to direct Revoc, an alien invasion movie set up at Summit.

David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Films/TV are producing.

Joe Robert Cole wrote the script for the project, whose plot details are being kept under wraps. It is, however, described by insiders as a grounded sci-fi epic and unique take on the genre.

The project is still in the development stages.

Bach is an award-winning commercial director from Germany who is making his feature debut with Agent 47. The movie, produced by Adrian Askarieh, Chuck Gordon and Alex Young, stars Rupert Friend as the eponymous assassin in the video game adaptation that hits theaters August 21.

Bach is repped by CAA, Berlin-based Driven By Creatives (DBC) in Berlin, plus attorney Peter Nichols.
