Variety exclusively reports that Frank Grillo has signed up to star in Wolf In The Wild for Awesomeness Films, with Claire Holt set to co-star.
The film tonally is described to be a mixture of Distrubia and Rear Window, with the premise of the film focusing on a young man who is taken in by his best friend’s family after his grandmother dies. Life initially seems idyllic, until he stumbles upon proof that his adopted father may be a violent criminal.
Frank Grillo said:
I’m excited to be working with Awesomeness on a script that is a throwback to suspense thrillers I love.
Greg Plotkin (Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension) is on board to direct the film on a script written by Mark Mavrothalasitis and Will Frank, with Awesomeness chief Brian Robbins and Awesomeness Films head Matt Kaplan serving as Producers. Well the premise of the film and attaching Frank Grillo to the project has my curiosity and if Grillo plays the adoptive criminal father then it definitely will have my attention and cinema ticket purchase as Grillo has been on fire recently with his turns in The Purge: Anarchy and on television show Kingdom, not forgetting his appearance in cinemas now in Captain America: Civil War and The Purge: Election Year and Beyond Skyline still to come later this year.
