Checking the movie site IMDb, there is a film called “Replay” listed as in development, but no other information was provided as to a description about the film.

According to the report:

Likened by the filmmakers to John Wick and The Raid in terms of its close-quarter action scenes and to The Terminator for its sci-fi storytelling, Replay is the story of Erin Staffer (Munn), whose husband is kidnapped and murdered. Now, armed only with illegal, bleeding edge tech and a desperate plan, Erin must do everything in her power to change the past and save him.

The “X-Men: Apocalypse” star will not only star in the thriller, but produce alongside ” Erwin and Hal Sadoff of Dark Castle Entertainment.

We can hardly wait!
