Ric Roman Waugh Directing Atlas Entertainment's Rubicon

Relativity is partnering with Atlas Entertainment to develop Rubicon, a revenge thriller project created by stuntman Ric Roman Waugh (seen above) and Michael A. Lerner (of French Exit and Deadlines). Plot details are being kept under wraps at the moment, but the thriller is supposedly female-driven and set in a Mexican border town. Ric Roman Waugh, who has directed films like Exit, In the Shadows, and Felon, will be directing Rubicon. The project is being funneled through Relativity and Atlas' three-year, six-picture financing deal. I'm hoping with a title like Rubicon this will be a complex thriller, but it's hard to tell early.
The reason why the title of this project captured my attention today is because Rubicon is the same working title that Bryan Singer's Valkyrie used when it was shooting. That turned out to be a thriller with a detailed and complex assassination plot. I doubt that Waugh's Rubicon will have an assassination storyline, but I'm expecting a good thriller either way. Waugh did stunts for movies like Last Action Hero, True Romance, Double Dragon, Sudden Death, Gone in Sixty Seconds, and Jet Li's The One. I haven't seen his last three films, but I hope this means we'll get some awesome action and awesome stunts. Stay tuned for updates!
