Just Cause movie in development

Hitman, Kane and Lynch movie producer on board

Pack your parachutes, people - it looks like a Just Cause film is on its way to the big screen.

Producer Adrian Askarieh Askarieh will be overseeing the Hollywood adaptation, the rights for which have been optioned by Eric Eisner's L+E Pictures to Avalanche Studios.


Askarieh was responsible for the production of the Hitman film and is also overseeing an adaptation of the Square-Enix crime shooter, Kane and Lynch for Millennium Films and Lionsgate, with Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx attached.

Hitman 2 was also reported to be in the works back in May, with Daniel Benmayor named as director, although news on the sequel has been quiet since.
