Paramount Pictures has picked up Sascha Penn’s spec script “Bounty,” with Will Smith attached to star.

The Boston-set story has Smith playing a man wrongly convicted of murder. He escapes from prison determined to prove his innocence — a nearly impossible task after the widow of the man he supposedly killed puts a $10 million bounty on him, dead or alive.

Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment will produce the action-thriller along with Adam Kolbrenner of Madhouse Entertainment.

Smith will next be seen in Warner Bros.’ “Focus,” hitting theaters on Feb. 27. His upcoming projects include football drama “Concussion” (out Christmas Day) and Warner Bros.’ “Suicide Squad,” in which he’ll play Deadshot.
