Looks like Steven Seagal’s days of snapping necks, breaking bones and busting caps are far from over. It was recently announced at the American Film Market that the Aikido master has a $25 million dollar action thriller in the works titled Cypher.
According to Variety, Seagal will portray a special forces operative who – frustrated with the bureaucracy of war – goes rogue and tries to exterminate terrorists being protected by the government.
Cypher is based on an original script written by Seagal himself. There are currently no other stars or directors attached, but we’ll be sure to keep you informed.
BREAKING NEWS: According to Dark Horizons (via EP.com), producers are planning a theatrical release for Cypher, which will mark the first time a Steven Seagal movie won’t be straight-to-video since 2002’s Half Past Dead. Of course, 2012’s Machete doesn’t count, considering Seagal only had a limited starring role.
