Killing Pablo, which is being produced with Antonio Banderas' Green Moon Productions, will be directed by Gregory Nava (El Norte). Mark Bowden (Blackhawk Down) has written the screenplay based on his own novel about the manhunt for Pablo Escobar. Banderas is also attached to star in the film.

Shinobi is an epic drama set in 17th century Japan and written by Rudy Wurlitzer (Little Buddha) and Stuart Beattie. Janet Yang of Manifest Film Co, David Smith and Mata Yamamoto are producing the story of a young Englishman who trains to become a ninja warrior to avenge the murder of his family by a Japanese warlord.
