"Chris Cody (Seagal) the free world's most "independent" anti-terrorist agent, is summoned
from his military prison cell and promised a presidential pardon - with a hitch. An American Ambassador has been assassinated
by the US Secret Service. Now the C.I.A. wants Cody to uncover and terminate this deadly operation, but they don't tell him
the truth. Cody ends up overpowered and trapped beneath the waves but hardly out of his depth. "

Bey Logan and Jimmy Moy
are developing "Shadows on the Sun" as a project that will mark a radical departure from Seagal's tough-guy persona. Scripted
by Logan ("The Medallion"), it will feature Seagal as a burned-out former intelligence officer who runs a medical clinic in
Japan just after WWII...
