The British actor will be working alongside David Ayer of "Suicide Squad" fame, who is aboard the project as director for the Miramax movie.
This will be their first ever project together.
The said film, penned by "Salt" writer Kurt Wimmer, follows a man's personal journey of vengeance which takes on national stakes after he is revealed to be a former operative of a powerful and clandestine organisation known as the Beekeepers, according to Deadline.
Miramax's Bill Block expressed, "Having collaborated with Jason on Wrath Of Man and Operation Fortune, and with David on Fury, we are fortunate to partner with these masters of the new action genre to bring Kurt's brilliant script to the first installment of this franchise."
