The film will be directed by Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, who also helmed the 2014 Israeli hit film Big Bad Wolves. The two also wrote the screenplay along with Ehud Lavski. Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman of The Picture Company will produce as part of their overall deal with Studiocanal.

Details of the actual plot aren’t known just yet, but Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill and Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver are considered the film’s “touchstones,” which will mix stylized action with violence.
