STAY FROSTY: Idris Elba Enlists for the Warner Bros. Action Pic from EXTRACTION Helmer Sam Hargrave!

By: John M Jerva

Soon to be seen in this August’s The Suicide Squad from director James Gunn, Idris Elba is continuing to stay on the action train as the actor has enlisted to Star in a new Warner Bros action spec titled Stay Frosty. What’s even more awesome is that the film will be helmed by longtime MCU stunt pro and Extraction helmet Sam Hargrave!

The Synopsis Per Deadline: After miraculously surviving a bullet to the head, a man has to figure out who wants him dead and why. He needs to stop the assassin while still making it back home in time to spend Christmas with his son. It gives Elba a franchise play in a vehicle that is a bit of a John Wick-type character in a throwback to ’80s high-action Christmas movies that include Die Hard and Lethal Weapon. WB’s Peter Dodd was integral in bringing this one in.

Warner Bros won a wild bidding war for the project for a cool million in cash and the film was penned by Tyler Marceca with Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg producing along with Elba and Hargrave.

Elba is currently shooting a western called The Harder They Fall and is in hot demand. Hargrave, of course, served as Chris Evans’ stunt double for Marvel Studios and is also in demand after helming last year’s successful Netflix action pic Extraction which was the most watched movie ever on the streaming service.
