Well, we’re super excited for this one. Warner Bros. is celebrating today after winning a pretty insane spec auction for the script, Stay Frosty, written by Tyler Marceca.
The studio will pay over $1 million for the script, which is big money these days for a spec script.
Idris Elba is attached to star and Sam Hargrave is set to direct.
After miraculously surviving a bullet to the head, a man has to figure out who wants him dead and why. He needs to stop the assassin while still making it back home in time to spend Christmas with his son.
They’re hoping to build a John Wick-type franchise, with the feel of an 80s action film like Die Hard.
It sounds like it has the potential to be a pretty entertaining flick, especially with Elba starring in it.
No word on when filming might begin, but it likely won’t start until the winter or possibly even 2022. I wouldn’t expect to see this film in theaters until Christmas 2022, at the earliest.
But hey, I think it’s going to be worth the wait. Also, what a bada** title…Stay Frosty. I love it.
