Legendary has picked up an untitled superhero heist project from the filmmaking team behind Irish revenge thriller Bad Day for the Cut.
Chris Baugh and Brendan Mullin are behind the project, with the two writing and Baugh on board to direct. Both will produce.
The story is described as being a subversion on the superhero genre in which a group of career criminals stage a heist on the lair of a superhero and must escape with their lives when everything goes wrong.
Baugh and Mullin worked on shorts and television shows before making their feature debut with Bad Day, which premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. The movie told of a mild-mannered, middle-aged farmer who still lived at home with his ma. After she is murdered, he sets out to find the people who killed her.
Baugh and Mullin are repped by CAA and Grandview.
