Frank Grillo To Star In Motion-Thriller MIA, Hannibal Launches For EFM – .
EXCLUSIVE: Captain America and The Purge star Frank Grillo will star in the action thriller MIA.
Kevin Carraway (chain of command) is set to direct the script for Scott Windhauser (Hurricane Heist). Aleksander Vayshelboym (Red Hour) will star along with Grillo.
Grillo will play Jax, a man who wakes up in a precarious situation with no memory, no time and no everyone in the criminal world to kill him. Unable to turn, he has to team up with a street criminal to find out who he is and finds that he may not like the answers he reveals.
Production is planned for the second quarter of 2021.
Richard Rionda Del Castro from Hannibal Media will finance, manufacture and act as the worldwide sales agent. Grillo will work as Executive Producer with Frederico Lapenda.
The production team is rounded off by Amanda Cook (The Brawler) from Embolden Pictures, who will produce with Carraway and Rionda Del Castro.
Rionda Del Castro explains: “I’m really looking forward to this fast-paced action ride and I’m thrilled to be working with Frank Grillo. This adventure fits perfectly with Hannibal’s plan for 2021. Grillo is just right for taking on the character of Jax and wowing audiences to the end. We want to cast our villain now. “
Hannibal’s Slate includes the action adventure #Tsunami, Bounty, Crimson Blues, Welcome to Rio and the recently announced sequel to Give Em Hell Malone starring Thomas Jane, produced by Courtney Lauren Penn.
