HBO Picks Up ‘Beat the Reaper’ Project

HBO has bought Beat the Reaper, a thriller from New Regency executive produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, Deadline reports.

Written, produced and directed by Ocean’s Thirteen scribes Brian Koppelman and David Levien, the criminal/medical thriller is based on Josh Bazell’s 2009 novel centers on a hospital intern whose new patient recognizes him from his old life — as a hitman for the mob. With the government, the mafia and death all closing in, the doctor tries to buy time and do whatever it takes to keep his patients, and himself, alive.

New Regency will co-produce the adaptation with DiCaprio’s Appian Way and Rick Yorn’s LBI Entertainment.
