According to Variety, Nick Jonas (Jumanji franchise, Midway) and Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix, John Wick franchises) are attached to star in The Blacksmith, financed and produced by AGC Studios. The project is a feature adaptation based on the 2011 graphic novel from Kickstart Comics by Malik Evans and Richard Sparkman.

That modernity comes in the hero’s tech-savvy: Jonas plays Wes Loomis, a go-to weapons expert for the intelligence community who goes on the run after his lab is destroyed and colleagues murdered.

Resorting to his unique skills set to keep him alive, and the aid of a brilliant, young CIA analyst, Noelle Hazlitt, Wes seeks out his mentor, Mather (Fishburne), a retired blacksmith, to guide Noelle and him on what the film’s synopsis describes as “a journey that keeps this improbable pair one step ahead of their pursuers in a breathless, action-filled thriller that is just the beginning of the globe-trotting adventures of ‘The Blacksmith.’”

Pierre Morel (Taken) will direct the feature from an adapted screenplay by Ben Ripley (Source Code, Flatliners). The Blacksmith’s production is expected to begin later in 2020.

Stuart Ford, AGC Studios chairman and CEO said they “will have all the ingredients for a major new film franchise built around a very modern breed of action hero,” and added that the film is a “fresh, highly contemporary new take on the espionage genre.”
