Universal Pictures is acquiring rights to the Hong Kong action film Cheung Fo and will turn it into a Peter Berg-directed drama called "The Mission"
It's a hard job, but Peter Berg will do his best to complete "The Mission," an action flick which story centers on a group of criminals who bond as bodyguards for an aging crime boss. Their brotherhood is tested when one of them breaks ranks.
While Berg is about to direct, Dario Scardapane is writing the script. To your notice, "The Mission" actually is based on the Hong Kong action film titled "Cheung Fo," which rights has been acquired by Universal Pictures that is about to turn it into big screen.
