The 87North project marks the former child star’s first leading film role after winning the Oscar for “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” and will be directed by Jonathan Eusebio (second unit director “Deadpool 2,” “Violent Night”) in his theatrical feature film directorial debut. 

David Leitch and Kelly McCormick will produce through their 87North (“Bullet Train,” “Violent Night” and the upcoming “The Fall Guy”) banner.

“With Love” is written by Josh Stoddard (“Warrior,” “Kaleidoscope”), Luke Passmore (“Archenemy,” “Slaughterhouse Rulez”) and Matthew Murray (“Sheltered,” “CloudStreet: Soaring the American West”).

Plot details are being under wraps, but Quan has quite the background as a martial artist, so expect elevated fight choreography in the pic. Universal’s Executive Vice President of Production Development Jay Polidoro and Director of Production Development Tony Ducret will oversee the project on behalf of the Studio.
