Manchette's The Prone Gunman, Martin Terrier, has imposed a familiar—almost banal—storyline on to his life. He sets out in the world to seek his fortune, with a ten-year plan to achieve great riches. Afterwards, he will return to his native city as the town boy made good, and seek the hand of his childhood sweetheart.
In May 2013, Deadline Hollywood reported that Javier Bardem would play a villain. In June, Deadline stated that Ray Winstone had just joined the project. He played a mentor of the hitman (Penn), who is betrayed and then hunted by the organization he worked for.
Jean-Patrick Manchette subjects his characters and the reader alike to a fierce exercise in style. This tightly plotted, corrosive parody of "the success story" is widely considered to be Manchette's masterpiece, and was named a New York Times "Notable Book." The Prone Gunman is a classic of modern noir.
