VARIETY has announced that Warner Bros. Pictures is currently in negotiations to acquire the English-language remake rights to the Hong Kong martial arts comedy HITMAN.

HITMAN is the story of a paranoid billionaire who transfers his wealth into an escrow account with explicit orders that if he is murdered, the money will go to whoever kills his killer.

Mark Perez (COUNTRY BEARS) is currently in negotiations to write and produce the film.

The original film was produced in 1998 by China Star Entertainment and starred Jet Li.
