Frank Grillo, Donnie Yen & Alec Baldwin To Star In Action-Thriller The Father

I’m half way through the TV series Kingdom right now and it’s rapidly becoming one of my favourite shows of all-time. It isn’t really action but I may end up reviewing it at some point. Anyway, Kingdom star Frank Grillo is set to star alongside Donnie Yen and Alec Baldwin in a new action thriller called The Father.

Deadline Describes it as “an ode to the revered action movies of the 1980s, The Father is set against the Irish-American gangland of South Boston and charts the struggle of middle-class Hong Kong immigrant John Chung (Yen) making the best of his family’s new American life while working as a modest fish broker in the city’s infamous docklands. When his wayward teenage boys stumble upon four kilos of heroin, they’re hunted by a local crime ring and a group of corrupt cops.”

Arthur Sarkissian (Rush Hour), Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee of Thunder Road (John Wick), John Schramm and Yen will produce from a script by P.G. Cuschieri to be directed by Tommy Wirkola (Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters).

Sold! I can’t wait to see this one.
