While there might be no plans for any more Hangover movies, it appears Bradley Cooper is hoping to reteam with that trilogy’s helmer, Todd Phillips, for an adaptation of Don Pendleton’s Mack Bolan novel series, according to Deadline.
Bolan is an expert sniper with over 90 kills to his record, which earned him the nickname ‘The Executioner’. He appeared in 37 novel, starting with 1969’s War Against the Mafia, which followed Bolan’s battle with the mob after he returns from war to discover they have destroyed his family. The character has been described as a bit of a military-based, American James Bond, who can get out of any situation no matter how dangerous.
It’s not clear whether the film will be based on War Against The Mafia or another one of the books, although it’s likely the setting for the movie will be moved to the present day rather than the Vietnam era. Avatar 4 co-writer Shane Salerno is on scripting duty.
