Joe Carnahan (‘Grey,’ ‘Stretch,’ ‘The A-Team,’ ‘Smokin’ Aces’) is to take the director’s chair for ‘Boss Level,’ a ‘Groundhog Day’-style actioner that has Frank Grillo (‘Wheelman’ ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’) and Mel Gibson (‘Daddy’s Home 2,’ ‘Blood Father’) in talks to star.
Per Deadline, the action thriller follows a retired Special Forces veteran (Grillo) who is trapped in a never-ending loop resulting in his death. In order to stop his endless suffering, he must figure out who is responsible and stop them.
Producers include Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian, with Randall Emmett and George Furla’s EFO Films financing. The team are aiming to shoot next year with Carnahan providing the script.
