Hollywood star Idris Elba is collaborating with Extraction director Sam Hargrave for action movie Stay Frosty.

According to Deadline, Warner Bros has paid more than USD 1 million for the rights to writer Tyler Marceca’s spec script.

Elba will star as a man who miraculously survives an assassin’s bullet to the head and has to figure out who wants him dead and why as he makes his way back home in time to spend Christmas with his son.

The movie is said to be in the same vein as Christmas releases Die Hard and Lethal Weapon with a John Wick-type lead character. Elba and Hargrave will produce alongside Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg.
