Warner Bros. is teaming with scribe Brad Ingelsby to develop a film based on Sacred Prey, Vivian Schilling's novel about a hitman who becomes the victim of his own takedown.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the high-concept thriller centers on a loan shark who kills a man he believes duped him, only to wake up and find himself in the body of that man three days before the murder. He then must undertake a furious effort to prevent the murder he committed.
Although tentatively dubbed Sacred Prey, the project might yet get a new title, with Hit Man among those names being considered.
No production date has been set.
