Per the report, the actor will play Morris Stokes, a well-renowned former hitman for mob boss Easy-A, who is thrust back into action when his nephew, Leslie, makes a terrible mistake. Rather than put a bullet in the kid’s head, Stokes decides to help him recover the money and teach him important life lessons along the way.

Matthew Stone, who worked with Jackson on Soul Men, wrote the script. John Davis will produce.
