7. The Wild Bunch (TBA)
Mel Gibson’s next directorial venture is about a gang of American bandits who try to elude bounty hunters during the waning days of the wild West. The film is a remake of the 1969 film directed by Sam Peckinpah and has been written by David Ayer and Bryan Bagby. Peter Dinklage and Michael Fassbender star in the film alongside Jamie Foxx.
6. Untitled Henry & Rel Sci-Fi Project (TBA)
Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt star in Netflix’s untitled sci-fi flick directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. Though the plot details are kept under tight wraps, reports suggest that the movie follows two characters whose lives turn upside down when they cross paths with a deadly drug cartel. Foxx reportedly plays a family man who traces the mysterious origin of the supply line of the drug smuggling network.
An earlier version of the screenplay, titled ‘Power’ describes the movie as “a heightened sci-fi action thriller” set in Portland. The plot unfolds in the backdrop of a drug epidemic. Gordon-Levitt plays a fiery beat cop who locks horns with the drug lords on his own terms. He tries to wipe out the drug peddlers from the streets but realizes the best to do that is to take the drug himself. Machine Gun Kelly has also been attached to the project for an undisclosed character. When Joost and Schulman, who are known for ‘Catfish,’ ‘Paranormal Activity 3,’ ‘Paranormal Activity 4,’ ‘Nerve,’ and ‘Viral,’ direct actors like Foxx and Gordon-Levitt, the entire project becomes an intriguing affair. The duo directs the mysterious project from a screenplay by Mattson Tomlin, who is known for ‘Solomon Grundy.’ The movie is produced by Eric Newman and Bryan Unkeless on behalf of their Screen Arcade.
