‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’ helmer Patrick Hughes will take the directors chair. Robbie Fox wrote the script from a story by Fox and Jason Blumenthal. Blumenthal is also producing, along with Todd Black and Steve Tisch, his partners at Escape Artists.
Harrelson replaced Jason Statham in the film, it was reported that Statham turned his back on the picture when Sony refused to make the feature an R-rated comedy which was part of his terms to sign on the dotted line. Sony would rather push for a more generic pic that could stretch over a number of sequels.
The film is scheduled for a Sept. 17, 2021 release.
Since ‘The Big Bang Theory’ came to an end, Cuoco has been voicing the role of Warner Bros and DC’s animated series Harley Quinn. She will also star in HBO’s upcoming series ‘The Flight Attendant’ for which she also has an executive producer role.
