Filmmaker Brad Payton, who helmed Rampage with Dwayne The Rock Johnson, has enlisted for a new action project called Sniper Elite which is based on the video game of the same name which is a stealth shooter franchise.

Per Variety: The movie will see an elite Allied sniper, Karl Fairburne, engage in a cat-and-mouse chase through the streets of London at the height of the Blitz during World War II, as he tries to save British Prime Minister Winston Churchill from a Nazi assassin.

The “Sniper Elite” movie will reveal the hidden story of Fairburne, “marrying clever, stylish action with strong characters and incredible, twisted situations,” Rebellion said. As bombs rain down on the British capital, Fairburne “will have to make a choice between the fate of the war and confronting his deepest secret.”

Peyton will also produce and interestingly enough, the movie is being described as “Sherlock Holmes meets The Bourne Identity.”
