Dominic Sena to Direct ‘Johnny Two-Guns’

According to Variety “Dominic Sena, whose credits include “Gone in Sixty Seconds” and “Swordfish,” will direct the action-drama “Johnny Two-Guns.” 

Green-Light International is fully financing and launching worldwide sales at the Berlin Film Festival with the aim of beginning production this year. GLI, which launched at the American Film Market, is headed by Christian de Gallegos, Jeff Elliott and Chad Moore.

“Johnny Two-Guns” is written by Dito Montiel (“A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints”), Allan Ungar and and Chad Law.

 

Oriah Entertainment will co-produce the movie, which centers around war veteran and sharpshooter Johnny “Two-Guns” Trale after he returns home from Afghanistan to find that his wife and daughter have vanished without a trace — forcing him to take a job as an enforcer for a corrupt music mogul in an effort to fund his search efforts to find his family.

GLI is also launching sales at Berlin on John McTiernan’s action-thriller “Thin Rain.” He will direct from a script by Philip Shaw and Jeremy Sheldon in a story following a former American mercenary throughout Asia on a quest for redemption.

Joe Simpson will produce for Miscellaneous Entertainment. Andrew Mann, Simon Fawcett and GLI will exec produce.”

Count me in, particularly with Chad and Allan on board; I’m also excited to hear about a new project from John McTiernan.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
