Oscar-winning director Ang Lee is at the helm of the project, which had been in development for the past 20 years, originally set up at Disney.
It follows Henry Brogan (Smith), an elite assassin who suddenly is targeted and pursued by a mysterious young operative who seemingly can predict his every move.

Wong is onscreen in Paramount’s sci-fi film Annihilation and appears in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War from Disney and Marvel. He’s repped by Anonymous Content.
