Smith is currently writing The Undertaker, which is about a former Ira man living quietly in a remote part of Nova Scotia, Canada. While he is ashamed of his violent past but he is forced to take on one last job - killing a paedophile priest who works at the Vatican.
Backing for the project is set to come from London-based Catalyst Global Media, which will produce alongside Dan Films.
The $15m film is being put together as a co-production and is set to shoot in Canada, Northern Ireland and Italy.

We’ve all been there. A family member is deathly ill, an outsider is probably to blame, and local criminal has the solution if you have the cash. But what happens when you wake up the next morning with a hangover and the realization that maybe hiring a hit man wasn’t the wisest decision? Harper (Tye Sheridan) is a law student distracted by a mom in intensive care. She fell into a coma under questionable circumstances — questionable to Harper anyway — and he strongly suspects her boyfriend Vincent (Stephen Moyer) is responsible. A run-in with his stepdad sends Harper out to a local bar where he crosses paths with a thug named Johnny Ray (Emory Cohen) and his lady friend Cherry (Bel Powley). Drinks are consumed, plans are made, and the next morning when Johnny comes calling Harper realizes what he’s done. The trio are going to follow Vincent to his “business” meeting in Las Vegas »

Team Experience is at the Tribeca Film Festival. Here's Jason on Detour.
You know what will make me feel like it's the late 1990s again real quick? (If you answered "There's a Clinton in the White House" you're a little ahead of yourself, but just by a few months.) What will make me feel like it's the late 1990s again real quick is watching a movie about verbose criminals getting themselves into hyper-violent timeline-warping shenanigans - Things To Do In Denver When You're 8 Heads In A Duffel Bag; that ol' Pulp Fiction addiction.
Do you guys remember that time Oliver Stone tried to out-Tarantino Tarantino (even though Tarantino was always really trying to out-Stone Stone) and made U Turn? That's the Tarantino-ish that Detour reminded me the most of. And U Turn's not a bad thing to be reminded of! U Turn is nuts, in a never not entertaining way! »
