Severance Package for Lionsgate!

Lionsgate has aquired the rights to Duane Swierczynski's crime novel "Severance Package." The production company has hired Brett Simon (Assassination of a High School President) to direct and adapt the novel for the screen. Marc Platt and Adam Siegel will produce the action comedy for Lionsgate that could provide for a very violent and bloody flim that is current with the recent report.

The book follows a media relations director of a financial company who learns that the firm was a front for a covert intelligence agency that is being shut down immediately, with every manager scheduled to be terminated--literally.

This sounds dope! Brett Simon's film has had high marks on the festival junket so, I suspect Severance Package will be awesome!
