Stein wrote the screenplay and will direct the film, which is in pre-production. It follows two hit men as they embark on a borderline suicide mission for a mysterious employer and a high paycheck. Along the way, the unlikely pair discover that a dynamic woman named Annie (Robbie) may be more involved than they had originally suspected.
Highland Film Group is financing and will introduce the project to international buyers in Berlin. CAA is handling U.S. rights, and Robbie is in Berlin to meet with buyers about the project.
David Barron of BeaglePug and Molly Hassell will produce alongside Tom Ackerley, Josey McNamara, Sophia Kerr and Margot Robbie under their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.
“With an ambitious slate already lined up for Berlin, Highland is delighted to be able to kick off this year’s market with another title of such strong caliber,” said a statement from Highland Film Group’s Arianne Frasier and Delphine Perrier. “Crafted with incredibly in-demand and relevant talent in front and behind the camera, the project perfectly showcases the quality of genre-led movies we’re committed to supporting.”
Robbie will next be seen in Paramount’s Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, hitting theaters on March 4, and will star in Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad. She is represented by CAA and Management 360.
