Securing one more project under its wings, HQ Pictures has satisfyingly obtained rights to Mark Jonathan Stanley's sci-fi/actioner pitch, "12th Man", Variety has revealed.
In bringing up the picture to the surface, some of the company's execs have been confirmed to handle the production matters. HQ's senior development executive Rock Shaink will produce while Tyrese Gibson, Mike Le and Omar Shamout are all set to executive produce.
While no words yet on cast and the director, it is reported that the movie's story will focus on a man who has to deal with two hours of oxygen left and 11 criminals as he awakes on a dying space prison with no memory of who he is.
Established by Gibson last year, HQ Pictures is a division of Headquarter Entertainment and so far has already put two film projects under its banner, apart from "12th Man." One of them is the action thriller "Boom" which is intended to be a possible starring vehicle for Gibson with Nicole Rocklin serving as producer.
