Strike Back Movie In Development

According to EW Strike Back could be coming, well, back — and bigger than ever.

Left Bank Pictures is developing a feature film based on the cult hit Cinemax action series, EW has learned exclusively.

While still very much at an early stage, the London-based production company has a deal to develop the film with European pay TV giant Sky.

We’re hearing stars Sullivan Stapleton and Philip Winchester would likely reprise their roles if the film is greenlit.

Producers are also in early talks with getting Strike Back’s U.S. distributor and production partner Cinemax on board too, but no deal has yet been struck on that front.

If everything goes according to plan, the film would shoot in South America in 2016, with the hope of developing Strike Back into a theatrical franchise.

Strike Back finished its fifth and final season in July. It follows the adventures of a secretive branch of the British Defense Intelligence service who take on high risk missions around the globe and is based on a novel of the same name by former Special Air Service soldier Chris Ryan.
