Mickey Rourke takes out a hit on 'St. Vincent'
According to Variety, the Cameron Young script for "St. Vincent" focuses on a hitman who returns to his old neighborhood to complete a botched hit. For reasons probably better explained in the story, he ends up posing as a priest and even taking confession from his target. Awkward!
Set up through Occupant Films and Secret Handshake Entertainment, "St. Vincent" is expected to begin production later this year.
Rourke, a Golden Globe winner for "The Wrestler," also appears in "Killshot" and the upcoming "The Informers." His busy list of upcoming projects includes "13," Sylvester Stallone's "The Expendables" and a rumored role in "Iron Man 2."
Rourke and Hill previously worked together on 1989's "Johnny Handsome."
Although Hill hasn't directed a feature since 2002's "Undisputed," he's won Emmys for helming the pilot for HBO's "Deadwood" and as a producer of the acclaimed miniseries "Broken Trail."
