Pierce Brosnan is Fast Charlie in Phillip Noyce’s new thriller

Boomtown Media Partners & Screen Media Ventures, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment Company, announced Pierce Brosnan will star in the upcoming hitman thriller Fast Charlie, to be directed by Phillip Noyce (Salt, Clear & Present Danger). The original screenplay is written by Richard Wenk (The Magnificent Seven, The Equalizer), inspired by the Edgar Award-nominated novel Gun Monkeys by Victor Gischler. Daniel Grodnik (Bobby) and Mitchell Welch (Chain of Command) will produce. Screen Media’s David Fannon and Seth Needle, and Foresight Unlimited’s Mark Damon and Tamara Birkemoe, and David Nagelberg will executive produce on behalf of companies. The film is scheduled to begin production in January. Foresight is handling international sales and has begun discussions with buyers as part of next week’s American Film Market.

Charlie Swift has worked for his aging mob boss Stan for twenty years, skillfully operating as a prolific fixer and efficient hitman. When a rival boss moves to eliminate Stan and his entire team, he fails in wiping the team clean. Now on his own, Charlie will stop at nothing to avenge his friend, and has no plans to leave anyone alive.

Casting discussions for other roles are currently ongoing.

“We are thrilled to be working with the immense talent involved with Fast Charlie,” said Screen Media President, David Fannon. “Pierce Brosnan, Phillip Noyce and Richard Wenk have delivered some of the most commercial, action-filled films of the past few decades. We’re certain audiences across the globe will jump at the chance to enter into this exciting world and story.”

“The first film I ever sold internationally was the first film Dan Grodnik ever produced,” said Foresight Unlimited Chairman Mark Damon. “Now, forty years, and 50 films later, it’s great to reunite with Dan on such a fabulous project. The Richard Wenk script is both fun and exciting – a killer script – that will make a killer film about an especially likable killer.”

Pierce Brosnan will be seen in Warner Brothers’ Black Adam, set for release next summer, as well as Netflix’s action/comedy The Out-Law. Brosnan is represented by CAA, the Special Artists Agency and Viewpoint.
