Len Wiseman plays a Shell Game

Most directors harbour passion projects that they’re itching to work on, but have to wait out the stages of their career until they can finally make that pitch a reality.

Len Wiseman, fresh off the success of Die Hard 4.0, is finally pulling the trigger on Shell Game, a sci-fi action thriller that follows a detective plunged into a dangerous black market that offers immortality.

"I've been wanting to make this film for the past five years, but it's a huge film and has always been too expensive to make at the level I've wanted to make it at," Wiseman told. "Now I'm finally getting a chance to do it at that level."

Variety wants to live forever with the story .
