Sebastian Stan to Beat the Reaper for Pirates director


Captain America
alum Sebastian Stan has signed on to join Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski’s next, an adaptation of crime thriller Beat the Reaper.

Based on Josh Bazell’s debut novel, the feature will see Stan as a young ER doctor whose world falls apart when a patient recognises him from his former life as a mafia hitman – forcing him to fight for survival as the enemies accrued by that life arrive to exact their revenge.

Leonardo DiCaprio was previously attached to star in the project across its now decade-long development, and remains attached as a producer through his Appian Way label. Scripting comes courtesy of Billions creators Brian Koppelman and David Levien.
