Matthew Vaughn is set to direct MGM’s spy thriller “I Am Pilgrim”.
The film is based on Terry Hayes’ international bestseller about “Pilgrim,” the codename for a man who doesn’t exist. The adopted son of a wealthy American family, he once headed up a secret espionage unit for US intelligence. Now in anonymous retirement, he is called upon to lend his expertise to an unusual investigation, but ultimately becomes caught in a terrifying race against time to save America from oblivion.
Hayes is adapting the script.
Vaughn will also produce and co-finance through his Marv Films. Lloyd Braun is producing through his Whalerock Industries banner with Andrew Mittman serving as executive producer.
Production is scheduled to get underway next year.
