The film will be based on A.J. Lieberman and artist Riley Rossmo’s graphic novel and will feature the Guardians of the Galaxy star as a man suffering from multiple personality disorder, who becomes a counter-intelligence agent.
The project has been in the works for several years, with Zombieland writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese initially writing a screenplay for Disney.
But the movie was not picked up by the studio, and executives at Universal acquired the project and hired World War Z’s Marc Forster as the director, according to Collider.com.
Forster is now only attached to the project as a producer and a new director has not yet been hired.
