John Wick director Chad Stahelski is set to produce an English-language remake of the upcoming Indian martial arts actioner Kill via 87Eleven Entertainment for Lionsgate.

The original film directed by Nikhil Nagesh Bhat follows army commando Amrit (Lakshya) as he finds out his star-crossed lover Tulika (Tanya Maniktala) is engaged against her will. So he boards a New Delhi-bound train to derail the arranged marriage and reunite with his true love. But his journey takes a turn when a gang of knife-wielding thieves begin to terrorize innocent passengers on the trail, prompting Amrit to take them on himself and save those around him.

“’Kill’ is one of the most vivid, wild, and creative action movies I’ve seen recently. Nikhil delivers relentless action sequences that need to be seen by as wide an audience as possible. It’s exciting to be developing an English-language version — we have big shoes to fill and I’m looking forward to working with Nikhil, Karan, Apoorva, Guneet, and Achin to achieve that,” said Stahelski.

The original Hindi-language Kill hits theaters this July 4th.
