The long-gestating video game adaptation ‘Just Cause’ enlists Derek Kolstad to write the screenplay for the feature film.
Kolstad is prominent for writing all three ‘John Wick’ films. He recently wrote ‘Booker’ for Sony, which has director Gerard McMurray (‘The First Purge,’ ‘The Twilight Zone’) onboard. Additionally, he is developing Hulu’s ‘Hitman’ series and the film ‘Echo,’ both based on video games. Further, his scripts for ‘The Man from Nowhere,’ ‘The Steward’ and ‘Nobody’ are in development. Meanwhile, Lionsgate’s ‘John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum’ is in theaters now.
The basic premise of the four-game franchise is below:
“Rico Rodriguez is on a race-against-time mission to stop The Black Hand, a lethal mercenary group.”
Director Brad Peyton (‘San Andreas,’ ‘Rampage’) is no longer attached.
Moreover, there is no cast, filming, or release information as of now.
