Production on the film is scheduled for the latter part of 2020. The synopsis reads:

Wes Loomis (Jonas) is a “Blacksmith” – the intelligence community’s go-to weapons expert. When his clandestine lab is destroyed and his colleagues murdered, Wes must go on the run with only his unique set of technological skills and the help of a brilliant, young CIA analyst Noelle Hazlitt to keep him alive. They seek out Mather (Fishburne) a retired blacksmith and Wes’ mentor, to guide them on a journey that keeps this improbable pair one step ahead of their pursuers in a breathless, action-filled thriller that is just the beginning of the globe-trotting adventures of “The Blacksmith.”

Jonas was recently seen in Jumanji: The Next Level opposite Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, while Fishburne was part of the cast of the third John Wick movie.
