Mel Gibson is putting his action boots on once again.
The action-packed thriller comes from Brit filmmaker Tim Kirkby, best known for directing episodes of Veep and the pilot for Fleabag, and follows a brilliant ex-detective gone rogue. The film is based on the novel Last Looks by Howard Gould and published by Dutton. The book’s sequel, Below the Line, is set to be released next summer.
Waldo introduces a new hero in disgraced former LAPD detective Charlie Waldo (Hunnam), currently living the life of a minimalist in the woods. His quiet life comes to a startling halt when he is roped back into working as a private eye to investigate the murder of an eccentric TV star’s wife. Filming is set to commence in the first quarter of 2019.
Gibson can next be seen in the Venice-bowing Dragged Across Concrete, and also has Farhad Safinia’s The Professor and the Madman and Boss Level, directed by Joe Carnahan, in the works. He is repped by CAA.
Hunnam has JC Chandor’s Triple Frontier, Justin Kurzel’s The True History of the Kelly Gang and Max Winkler’s Jungleland lined up. He is with CAA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
Eiza Gonzalez has Robert Zemeckis’ Welcome to Marwen; Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel; Bloodshot, alongside Vin Diesel; and Kung Fury 2 coming up. She is repped by CAA and Management 360.
