Washington, Mar 11 : Len Wiseman has signed on to helm futuristic sci-fi action thriller 'Shell Game' for Lakeshore Entertainment and Columbia Pictures.
'Shell Game' follows a detective who is faced with a moral dilemma as he investigates the dangerous black-market business of immortality.
Wiseman and Chris Morgan penned the original screenplay by Justin Biondi and Andrew Ludington.
Wiseman has described the new film as a passion project.
"I've been wanting to make this film for the past five years, but it's a huge film and has always been too expensive to make at the level I've wanted to make it at. Now I'm finally getting a chance to do it at that level," Variety quoted Wiseman, as saying.
Wiseman is producing alongside Lakeshore's Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi and Skip Williamson.
