After years of being in and out of active development, what was originally set to be the U.S. adaptation of the French Canadian film, Father and Guns – Blood Father is now ramping-up production.
Scripted by Peter Craig (The Town) and Directed by Jean-François Richet (Mesrine), Blood Father is set to star Mel Gibson.
The plot follows the plight of a father (Gibson) attempting to rescue his 17-year-old runaway daughter. After years on the run she’s taken up with a shady older man whose ties to nefarious activities land them both at the center of a spree of violent crimes.
The action/drama is scheduled to begin filming in New Mexico in mid May.
Stay tuned for casting & location info.!
