Reacher star Alan Ritchson (Fast X) is set to take the lead in the action thriller Motor City from director Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter).
The film follows Ritchson’s John Miller, a Detroit man released from prison, who unleashes a rampage of brutal vengeance on those who framed him. The Detroit-set project is described as an “immersive visual storytelling, with stunningly choreographed and stylized action sequences.”
“We have an incredible script that takes us into a gruesomely dark world. I’m thrilled to bring this story to life on the big screen. With the help of our amazing cast and the talented production team, we’re poised to create a cinematic spectacle,” said Bekmambetov.
Greg Silverman and Jon Berg will produce for Stampede Ventures, alongside Cliff Roberts and Chad St. John, who also penned the script. Executive Producers include Chris Bosco and Gideon Yu for Stampede Ventures and John Friedberg for Black Bear International. Black Bear International will introduce the film to international buyers at the upcoming Cannes Marché du Film and WME Independent are co-repping domestic rights with Stampede.
