After directing the romantic comedy The Ugly Truth, Lionsgate has Robert Luketic jumping genres to helm a thriller. Titled Five Killers, the studio has picked up Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher to star.
Katherine Heigl, Ashton Kutcher for Five Killers
Katherine Heigl should work well with Luketic, considering she co-stars in The Ugly Truth with Gerard Butler.
Five Killers kicks off when a woman meets the man of her dreams while on vacation. Married bliss is turned upside down when they discover that their neighbors may be assassins hired to kill them.
While Heigl's popularity in film has been growing, fans of the ABC series Grey's Anatomy might soon to be sad/mad to see her retire from television to focus on film full time.
Production on Five Killers is set to begin next month in Atlanta and the south of France.
