Mel Gibson & Cole Hauser are Sitting on a Powder Keg in the Trailer for the New Action-Thriller PANAMA!

By: John M Jerva

Saban Films has issued new key art and a trailer for the adrenaline pumping new actioner Panama. Starring Mel Gibson and Cole Hauser, who both starred in Paparazzi, the film follows Hauser who is sent on a dangerous mission in the war ravaged country of Panama. Things go awry of course and things go from bad to worse. Check out the new footage below!

Mel Gibson and Cole Hauser star in the edge-of-your-seat action thriller set during the political upheaval of 1989 Panama. When the U.S. is on the brink of invading Panama, a former marine (Hauser) is hired by a CIA operative (Gibson) for a top secret arms trade mission. Alone and among the most dangerous arms dealers, Becker (Hauser) learns the true nature of political power.

I actually just watched Tears of the Sun a few weeks back and it occurred to me as it always does, is why isn’t Hauser a bigger action star. I know he’s on Yellowstone but he definitely has the presence and gravitas to kick ass on a regular basis. Hopefully this film will set things in motion for the actor. Gibson is always solid whether it’s a cameo or a longer role so this one looks like it’ll be business as usual.

This one looks banging though and Hauser looks battle ready in the footage from the trailer. Crank director Mark Neveldine helms the pic. Charlie Weber, Jackie Cruz, Kate Katzman, Victor Turpin, Mauricio Henao and Simon Phillips also star.

Panama will hit select theaters and VOD on March 18th!
