EXCLUSIVE: Amazon Studios has tapped up-and-coming screenwriter Lucas Carter to pen a remake of the 2016 German action flick Plan B: Scheiss Auf Plan A. Braden Aftergood and Sylvester Stallone will produce the new feature for Balboa Productions, with the original’s star Can Aydin serving as executive producer.
