Frank Grillo Signs on for Point Blank Remake

Frank Grillo’s star continues to rise (and shine) as he has another new project in development. According to Collider Grillo has signed on alongside Anthony Mackie in a remake of the classic Point Blank.

Collider states “Joe Lynch (Mayhem) is directing from a script by Adam G. Simon (Man Down), and Joe Carnahan is producing with Grillo via their War Party banner, along with French giant Gaumont. The film will be an action-packed remake of Fred Cavayé‘s 2010 crime drama Point Blank (A bout portant). Production is slated to start this summer at a more than reasonable budget of around $12 million.

Mackie will play a nurse who’s forced to spring a wounded murder suspect from the hospital when the man’s brother kidnaps his pregnant wife and wants to make a trade. Grillo will play the wounded man who needs Mackie to keep him alive long enough to make the exchange.”
