In the comedy, True Memoirs of an International Assassin,” Kevin James plays an accountant mistaken for an assassin when a novel he’s writing is accidentally published as nonfiction, forcing him to flee to Belize.
Assassin will be directed by Jeff Wadlow (Kick Ass 2) based on a Black List screenplay by Jeff Morris and it will be produced by Kevin Frakes, Todd Garner, Raja Collins and Justin Begnaud. Shooting begins this fall in Atlanta.
Under the deal, “Assassin” will be presented as a Netflix event in 2016, meaning it will debut exclusively on the streaming service and not in theaters. The budget for the production will be considerable, according to a source, and on par with other James movies made by major studios like Sony Pictures. The figures for the deal were not disclosed.
