Reed Morano, who just won an Emmy for helming The Handmaid’s Tale, will direct the film, which James Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli are producing through their Eon Productions banner. IM Global is financing the project, with co-founder Stuart Ford serving as executive producer with Greg Shapiro and Mark Burnell. Paramount is handling worldwide distribution.
The movie is a contemporary adaptation of the first of Burnell’s Stephanie Patrick novels. Lively will play the titular heroine who, after the death of her family in an airplane crash on a flight that she was meant to be on, discovers the crash was not an accident. She then seeks to uncover the truth by adapting the identity of an assassin to track down those responsible.
Law just finished shooting the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and is set to appear in Woody Allen’s next film starring Elle Fanning, Selena Gomez and Rebecca Hall. He is repped by WME.
