Amazon Studios has acquired rights to the romantic thriller movie “Ending Things”, starring Priyanka Chopra and Anthony Mackie.
The Kevin Sullivan spec revolves around a hit-woman who wants out of the assassin business and out of her personal relationship with her business partner.
She soon discovers she doesn’t want to end their bond as well as needs to join forces with her partner for one last night out in order to survive the breakup and their last job.
Davis Entertainment and Lit Entertainment will produce with Inspire Entertainment and Mackie’s Make It With Gravy Productions.
Chopra Jonas will be exec producer through her Purple Pebble Pictures banner.
Both stars are busy. Chopra Jonas wrapped the romantic comedy "Text For You" opposite Sam Heughan, as well as the AGBO Amazon limited series "Citadel".
Moreover, Mackie is set to make his directorial debut with "Spark", a drama in which King Richard’s Saniyya Sidney stars as Claudette Colvin, an unsung pioneer of the Civil Rights era.
He is also set to play Captain America in the fourth movie in the Marvel cinematic franchise.
The spec deal was brokered by Verve and UTA Independent Film Group.
