Mark Helfrich to Direct Action-Thriller Five Killers
September 7, 2007–Mark Helfrich will direct the action-thriller “Five Killers” for Lionsgate.
The editor-turned-helmer recently made his directing debut with Lionsgate's romantic comedy “Good Luck Chuck,” which opens September 21 and stars Dane Cook and Jessica Alba.
Penned by Bob DeRosa, “Five Killers” centers on a former hitman whose seemingly perfect life is thrown upside down when someone from his past puts a hit out on him. Before “Good Luck Chuck,” DeRosa edited such tentpoles as “X-Men: The Last Stand” and the “Rush Hour” films.
