Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo Remaking POINT BLANK

‘Mayhem’ and ‘Knights of Badassdom’ helmet Joe Lynch is to take the director’s chair for Hollywood’s English language remake of 2010 French hit ‘Point Blank’ for Netflix.

With ‘Captain America: Civil War’ co-stars Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo attached in the lead roles, the action thriller sees Mackie playing a nurse who is forced to help a wounded murder suspect (Grillo) flee from the hospital when the man’s brother kidnaps his pregnant wife.

Production is expected to begin this Summer with Lynch directing from a script penned by Adam G. Simon (‘Man Down’). Joe Carnahan (‘The Grey’) is on board to produce alongside with Grillo.
