Kutcher and Luketic Take on Five Killers


Lionsgate has set Ashton Kutcher to star in and Robert Luketic to direct Five Killers, an action comedy that will begin production early next year, reports Variety.

Kutcher will play a former hitman whose life is turned upside down because someone from his past has paid a group of killers to bump him off.

Lionsgate acquired the project as a spec script by Bob DeRosa, and Ted Griffin is doing a rewrite.

Scott Aversano is producing along with Kutcher and his Katalyst Productions partner Jason Goldberg. Michael Paseornek and John Sacchi will executive produce.
