At the Cannes market the report indicates that a deal has been reached at an estimated worth of $10m, which is poised to raise Frank Grillo’s profile even further as a leading man after his previous leading roles on the big/small screen in The Purge: Anarchy and TV Series Kingdom, whilst also appearing on the big screen in Captain America: Civil War and will appear later in the year in The Purge: Election Year and Beyond Skyline. He’s also been recently cast in another film titled Wolf In The Wild.
Frank Grillo will be playing a getaway driver thrust into a high stakes race-to-survive after a bank robbery goes terribly wrong. With a car full of money and his family on the line, the clock is ticking to figure out who double-crossed him, and the only person he can trust is his 14-year-old daughter. Jeremy Rush penned the script and will also be directing, with Joe Carnahan producing the film alongside Myles Nestel for The Solution Entertainment Group and Frank Grillo, who’s making his producing debut.
I’m glad that Wheelman has been snapped up and landed on Netflix, giving production time to breathe and also allow Rush to make a film that he wants to make.
