Film adapted from novel “Shibumi” Rodney William Whitaker 1979, in which the protagonist Hel becomes one of the most paid and skilled assassins in the world. A childhood favorite of Stahelski, the book covers espionage, revenge plots, global politics, and Hel's countless personal travails.

Stahelski will produce with partners Alex Young and Jason Spitz. While neither the cast nor the details of the plot are unknown.

Recall that earlier Chad Stahelski told when to expect the new “Highlander” Henry Cavill in the title role.
