The film also stars Charlie Hunnam and its based on a three book series of novels from Howard Michael Gould which centers on a L.A. detective.

Per Deadline: Adapted by Gould (Mr. 3000) and named after the first book in his three-book series, Last Looksintroduces to the big screen Charlie Waldo (Hunnam), an ex-LAPD superstar who left the force and now lives a life of simplicity and solitude deep in the woods. Alistair Pinch (Gibson) is an eccentric actor who spends his days drunk on the set of his TV show. When Pinch’s wife is found dead, he is the prime suspect and Waldo is convinced to come out of retirement to investigate what happened. The case finds Waldo contending with gangsters, Hollywood executives and preschool teachers, all in pursuit of clearing Pinch’s name, or confirming his guilt.
