THR says that the movie will be the first in a planned trilogy (naturally) and is being backed by Stoney Lake Entertainment, a new company founded by producer Paul Lalonde. While Armstrong is best known for his stunt work, he is also a long time second unit director, working on recent films such as The Amazing Spider-Man, Thor, The Green Hornet and Salt. His experience as feature director is limited, however. »
