MUNICH, Germany, Oct. 26 (UPI) -- Germany's Lighthouse Structured Finance announced Wednesday it will put up the money for an action film "The Shooter," starring Wesley Snipes.

Snipes will play an ex-CIA operator who is reactivated to take out a renegade agent, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Shooting is set to begin early next year in Britain.

Lighthouse was launched in Munich this year with about $25 million in private funds to invest in as many as five feature projects.

Other Lighthouse films include "Marlowe" and "Cruel & Unusual Punishment," both to be produced by British film veteran Roland Joffe, and the sequel "Showgirls 2."
