Scott Adkins is The Returner


Here’s a nice piece of news from Deadline: Scott Adkins has pounced on the lead in The Returner, a period indie actioner from Boundless Pictures. He’ll star as John Piper, the owner of a speakeasy who refuses to sell Al Capone’s booze during Prohibition and pays the ultimate price. After Piper and his family are murdered, he mysteriously returns from the grave; a revenant, he has nine lives to exact vengeance — and possibly rewrite history.

William Kaufman will direct The Returner from a script by Chad Law, who is also on as a producer. Courtney Lauren Penn and Brandon Burrows of Boundless Pictures producing the film through Boundless’ genre label, Firebrand, which produces genre pictures in the $10 million and under range.

Adkins will be next seen in Lionsgate’s upcoming Criminal, alongside Ryan Reynolds and Kevin Kostner, and is currently shooting Marvel’s Doctor Strange with Rachel McAdams and Benedict Cumberbach.

That sounds like something a little different for Adkins so colour me intrigued.
