Jackie Chan to star in Joe Carnahan’s Five Against A Bullet


Five Against The Bullet has been in development for a while now. Alex Litvak (The Three Musketeers) wrote the original screenplay. The latest development has Joe Carnahan (The Grey, Smokin’ Aces, Narc) on board to direct and he is also doing rewrites.

The follows a man’s run for mayor in Mexico after the death of his father at the hands of a drug cartel and the team of elite bodyguards who are tasked with protecting him.

Jackie Chan is set to star in the film and it is thought he will be one of the bodyguards. The plan is for this to be the start of a new film series that follows the team of bodyguards through different assignments.

I like the sound of that. Carnahan directing Chan could lead to some cinematic gold.

Mimran Schur, Red Dragon, and Suretone Pictures join Di Bonaventura in producing the film, with Sparkle Roll financing. Jordan Schur of both Mimran and Suretone is co-producing alongside Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, Sandrine De Clercq, and David Mimran. Erik Howsam, also of Di Bonaventura, is executive producing.
