Tradecraft: So... Maybe a Spy Movie?

Deadline reports that Open Road, the new distribution company releasing the Statham'n'Owen spy actioner Killer Elite, has acquired US distribution rights for a thriller called The Key Man by Joby Harold. Hm. Well, that title sounds kind of possibly like a spy movie, right? Maybe? Let's see what financier Bill Block has to say. According to the QED International topper, the movie "recalls great films like Three Days Of The Condor and Marathon Man and is built on a fantastic story in the vein of The Da Vinci Code and National Treasure, and will appeal to a broad global audience.” Hm. Doesn't give us too much more to go on, but the first two movies he name-checks are spy movies, so maybe... We'll stick with maybe and keep monitoring this one as more information becomes available.
