According to Coming Soon, Exclusive Media has announced that they will produce and finance Agent: Century 21, an action comedy with Cameron Diaz and Benicio Del Toro attached to star. The film will mark the feature film debut of Adam Hashemi. The film will be produced by Andrew Lazar of Mad Chance (Confessions of a Dangerous Mind) and David Greenblatt (Battle: Los Angeles) with Shane Black (Iron Man 3) attached to executive produce. The story, penned by Greg Brooker (Stuart Little), sees Diaz play a woman who works in real estate and is dejected from her recent divorce. Feeling that she can’t catch a break, she agrees to take on an unpleasant task for her boss which leads to her getting kidnapped and tossed into the center of a Mexican drug war. Del Toro plays the Cartel boss who takes pity on her and gives her a chance to save her life by sending her on an impossible mission to avenge the death of his son.
“Agent: Century 21 is an adrenaline-infused comedy which brings together two of the hottest stars in Hollywood,” said Guy East and Nigel Sinclair, Co-Chairmen of Exclusive Media. “It’s a dream combination and with our friend Andrew producing the film, it doesn’t get much better than this.” President of international sales and distribution of Exclusive Media, Alex Walton, will shop the project to foreign buyers at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival; CAA is representing North American rights. The film is set to start filming in September.
