Will Smith is attached to star in the thriller "Bounty," that Paramount has just acquired on spec says Heat Vision.
In Sascha Penn's script Smith will play a man, wrongly convicted of murder, who breaks out of prison to try and clear his name. Unfortunately for him, this task is made more difficult after the murder victim's widow puts out a $10 million 'dead or alive' bounty on his head.
No director is attached at this time.
Smith and Adam Kolbrenner will produce the film.
The production schedule is not set yet.
