Elba stars as a man who miraculously survives an assassin’s bullet to the head. He now has to figure out who wants him dead and why as he makes his way back home in time to spend Christmas with his son.
Elba and Hargrave will produce Stay Frosty alongside Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg, and Warner Bros. exec Peter Dodd.
Deadline broke the news, describing Elba’s character as being cut from the same deadly cloth as Keanu Reeves’ John Wick. It also says the film has a possible franchise play.
Elba is currently shooting the western The Harder They Fall. He recently wrapped the film Three Thousand Years of Longing. And up next he will play Bloodsport in the James Gunn-directed The Suicide Squad for Warner Bros.
