Frank Grillo ( Captain America, The Purge) is set to star in a new action-thriller titled M.I.A. Kevin Carraway (Chain Of Command) is set to direct from a script written by Scott Windhauser (Hurricane Heist). Aleksander Vayshelboym (Red Hour) will co-star alongside Grillo.
Grillo will take on the role of Jax, “a man who wakes up in a precarious situation with no memory, no time to spare and everyone in the criminal world out to kill him. With nowhere to turn, he is forced to team up with a streetwise criminal to find out who he is and realizes he might not like the answers he uncovers.”
I’ve enjoyed watching Grillo in the action films that he’s been in and this seems like a project that he’s going to perfectly fit right into.
Producer Rionda Del Castro said in a statement: “I am excited to be on this fast-paced action ride and thrilled to be working with Frank Grillo. This keep you guessing adventure is a perfect fit for Hannibal’s slate in 2021. Grillo is spot on to take on the character of Jax and keep the audience enthralled through the end. We are now looking to cast our villain.”
Production on the film is slated for 2021.
