We understand pic is currently moving into pre-production and will shoot later this year in Chile, the home country of Zaror and Espinoza. Plot follows Kris Chaney (Adkins) who, after being released from prison, embarks on a perilous mission to fulfill an old promise but finds himself in danger when he kidnaps Elisa, the daughter of a powerful gangster. Her father, Vincent, puts out a call to the entire criminal underworld to bring her back alive. El Corvo (Zaror), a psychopathic killer, joins the hunt not for the money but for his own vendetta against Vincent’s family. Kris must evade both Elisa’s powerful father and a ruthless killer bent on revenge to live long enough to tell Elisa the full story that has been hidden from her.

“We are honored that Craig, Scott, and Marco have put their trust in us to help achieve their vision for this truly remarkable project,” said Epstein. “Audiences are going to be blown away by some of the most unbelievable action sequences they will have ever seen. The realistic way Ernest shoots stunts mixed with Scott and Marco’s insane talent is going to thrill the fans beyond their wildest dreams.”

Adkins added: “I’m very excited to be reunited with Marko Zaror and to be working with director Ernesto Espinoza for the first time on a wonderful script by Mat Sansom.”
