Bob Odenkirk has inked a deal to co-produce and star in Nobody, a revenge thriller from STXfilms, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

In the pic, Odenkirk, who currently stars on AMC's Better Call Saul, where he plays the quick-talking lawyer Jimmy McGill, and plays journalist Ben Bagdikian in The Post, will play a man who rescues a woman pursued by thugs, only to find one of them is the brother of a drug lord.

Before Odenkirk struck gold with his role on Better Call Saul, the veteran funnyman completed three stints as a writer on Saturday Night Live. He also appeared on The Larry Sanders Show and Breaking Bad.

Derek Kolstad (John Wick) is writing the screenplay for Nobody. Odenkirk's Odenkirk-Provissiero shingle will co-produce along with Braden Aftergood. Executive producer credits will be shared by Kolstad, David Leitch (Atomic Blonde), Chad Stahelski and Kelly McCormick.
