Trebilcook is currently at work on the videogame-themed action flick Knockout, which brought him into the orbit of A Good Day to Die Hard consulting producer, Larry D. Webster. However, it’s worth noting that only Fox can authorize a new script, so either Webster is pursuing it on behalf of the studio, or there has been a misunderstanding between the parties involved.
