Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt have written the screenplay and Fuqua is producing the Millennium Films production with Butler, Ed Cathell III (The Paperboy), Danny Lerner (The Expendables 2), Alan Siegel & Mark Gill (Law Abiding Citizen). Fuqua has previously collaborated with such composers as Hans Zimmer (King Arthur, Tears of the Sun), Mark Mancina (Training Day, Shooter), Harry Gregson-Williams (The Replacement Killers) and Marcelo Zarvos (Brooklyn’s Finest).
