The film was written by Greg Johnson (The Son) and recently wrapped in Belfast.

Lucy Liu (Strange World, Shazam! Fury of the Gods) and Cooper Hoffman (Licorice Pizza) join Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz (No Time to Die, Inglourious Basterds) in Old Guy, the upcoming hitman comedy from Simon West (The Expendables 2, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider).

Hoffman and Waltz team up as a pair of unlikely hitmen in the film’s first-look still.

Old Guy follows aging contract killer Danny Dolinski (Waltz), who still believes he’s the best at what he does. Stuck at a dead end but vying for the love of club manager Anata (Liu), Danny is thrilled when The Company pulls him back into the field, but only to train Gen Z newcomer Wihlborg (Hoffman), a prodigy assassin with an attitude. 

Highland Film Group is co-financing the action comedy and handling worldwide rights.

“We are delighted that rising young talent Cooper Hoffman and Lucy Liu are joining our cast opposite the phenomenal Christoph Waltz,” said Highland Film Group CEO Arianne Fraser. “Waltz and Hoffman have great chemistry and will brilliantly capture the unlikely bond between the veteran contract killer and the plucky young upstart. And Liu perfectly embodies the role of the cool and stylish club owner who finds an unlikely connection with Waltz’s seasoned assassin in this compelling and action-packed story.”

Old Guy is produced by Jib Polhemus (The Last Son, The Expendables 2), Martin Brennan (One Way, Zone 414), Simon West and Petr Jákl (Medieval, The Last Full Measure). 

“Christoph has very unique humor on screen which will perfectly fit into the story and will make his character exceptional,” said Jákl.

Hal Sadoff (The Nice Guys, Orphan: First Kill) and Norman Golightly (Lord of War, Ghost Rider) will produce for Dark Castle Entertainment. The film is executive produced by R.U. Robot Studio’s Martin J. Barab and Blue Rider Pictures’ Walter Josten (Around the World in 80 Days, Holes).
