The film is being adapted from Trevanian’s (the pseudonym of Rodney William Whitaker) sprawling 1979 novel in which the well-traveled multilingual protagonist Hel becomes one of the highest-paid and most skilful assassins in the world. The book, which was a favourite of Stahelski’s growing up, encompasses espionage, revenge plots, global politics, and countless personal travails for Hel who grows up in Japan and becomes expert in the art of the ‘Naked/Kill’, a martial discipline that trains in the use of ordinary items as instruments of death.
