Daniel Espinosa has a new Post production…
The half-Chilean filmmaker has agreed to develop and direct the Good Films Collective’s The Execution.
The narrative drama focuses on the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi Arabian-born dissident and Washington Post columnist who was killed and dismembered after entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul to get a marriage license.
The film will explore how it happened, why it happened and what happened in the aftermath.
Petter Skavlan is attached to write the script.
Espinosa’s previous directing credits include Safe House, Life, Child 44 and Easy Money.
His next project to hit the big screen is the upcoming film Morbius with Jared Leto.
Khashoggi was killed by a Saudi hit team that was closely connected to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
