De Niro, Travolta Unleash A “Killing Season”

Robert De Niro and John Travolta are set to team for the action thriller “Killing Season” for Millennium Films, Corsan Pictures and FilmEngine says Deadline.

Set in the Appalachian Mountains, De Niro plays an American military veteran now living in a remote cabin in the woods. When a European tourist (Travolta) appears, the two men strike up an unlikely friendship.

It soon turns out that the visitor is a former Serbian soldier bent on revenge with the two battling across some of America’s most forbidding landscape.

Mark Steven Johnson (“Ghost Rider,” “Daredevil”) directs from a script by Evan Daugherty (“Snow White and the Huntsman”). Shooting kicks off January 16th.
