A fresh Steven Seagal (Above the Law, Contract to Kill) project, titled Paid on Death, has popped up on the radar. This upcoming actioner will team Seagal with director Shawn Sourgose (Blood of Redemption) and producer Kevin Carraway (Chain of Command).
Here’s what you can expect from the plot (via TE): A man known by his alias, ‘Assassin,’ (we’re guessing Seagal) works as a hired killer for the U.S. government, terminating individuals deemed too dangerous for society. When he becomes a target, he must discover who placed a hit on him before it’s too late…
Paid on Death is most likely in early stages of pre-production, so we expect to hear more about it later this year – but honestly – judging from the track record of Seagal films listed as “in development,” we wouldn’t be surprised if this one becomes vaporware (i.e. Cypher).
With that said, Seagal films “in the works/in talks” include China Salesman, Gunfighter, Deadly Arsenal, Four Towers, Under Siege 3, Above the Law 2, and of course, Seagal’s return to directing, Attrition.
