John Wick: Chapter 4 stars Scott Adkins (Accident Man: Hitman’s Holiday) and Marko Zaror (Fist of the Condor) are set to reunite once again for the action thriller Diablo from director Ernesto Diaz Espinoza (Fist of the Condor).
Film Mode Entertainment and Wonder Street are co-producing with a script from Mat Sansom. Both Adkins and Zaror are also serving as producers alongside Craig Baumgarten (Universal Soldier franchise) and Clay Epstein (Crypto).
The film follows Kris Chaney (Adkins) who, after being released from prison, embarks on a perilous mission to fulfill an old promise but finds himself in danger when he kidnaps Elisa, the daughter of a powerful gangster. Her father, Vincent, puts out a call to the entire criminal underworld to bring her back alive. El Corvo (Zaror), a psychopathic killer, joins the hunt not for the money but for his own vendetta against Vincent’s family. Kris must evade both Elisa’s powerful father and a ruthless killer bent on revenge to live long enough to tell Elisa the full story that has been hidden from her.
The project is currently moving into pre-production and will start rolling later this year in Chile.
