Lionsgate Acquires the Scott Eastwood Led Actioner DANGEROUS!

By: John M Jerva

In recent years, Scott Eastwood has been living up to his father’s iconic legacy and stepping into his shoes in the action genre department. Eastwood has had roles in Fate of the Furious as well as the well received The Outpost just to name a few and he’s not stopping there as he will also be seen in the upcoming Jason Statham starring action film Wrath of Man.

Now, according to Variety, Eastwood’s latest action offering Dangerous has just been acquired by Lionsgate for the U.S. and U.K.

Per Variety: Directed by David Hackl (“Saw V”), the film follows a reformed sociopath (Eastwood) who, after the death of his brother, heads to a remote island that soon falls under siege from a deadly gang of mercenaries. Forced to fend for himself, he discovers their role in his brother’s demise and sets off on a relentless quest for vengeance.

The plot surely sounds good and I like the sociopathic aspect to it as it would appear that Eastwood’s character will be a definitive anti-hero. He certainly has a great supporting cast around him which includes Mel Gibson in a key as well as Kevin Durand, Famke Janssen and his Fate of the Furious co-star Tyrese Gibson. Other notable cast members include Brenda Bazinet (“Shoot the Messenger”), Ryan Robbins (“Sanctuary”), Brendan Fletcher (“Braven”), Leanne Lapp (“iZombie”), Chad Rook (“Siren”) and Brock Morgan (“Cardinal”).

Helmed by David Hackl from a script penned by Christopher Borelli, it is said that the film will be released as a multi-platform title. No release date has been set but keep an eye out here for more to come!
