Details: Falcon Rising is the first installment of the Codename Falcon action franchise which will revolve around former marine John “Falcon” Chapman, a dark anti-hero driven by guilt, who will destroy himself unless given something else to destroy – a useful weapon-of-last-resort for the foreign ministry. The first movie sees Chapman traveling to Brazil to hunt down his sister’s brutal attackers, in the process discovering an underground world of drugs, prostitution, and police corruption ruled by the Japanese mafia.
The franchise will produce 1-2 movies a year following Chapman as he is sent to exotic locations to do the foreign ministry’s dirty work. Source(s): Moonstone films; Broadway World.
