“In the Bedroom” and “Little Children” director Todd Field’s long-gestating drama film “The Creed of Violence” looks like it may finally be coming back to life.
An adaptation of Boston Teran’s novel, the story depicts the 1910 Mexican revolution through the eyes of a small-time assassin named Rawbone and a young Bureau of Investigation agent called John Lourdes. The pair – who are also estranged father-and-son – work together to infiltrate the Mexican criminal underground.
Moviehole reports that the project has finally begun pre-production, almost seven years after the last news reports on the film indicated Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale were being sought for roles.
Brian Oliver (“Hacksaw Ridge”) will produce the project which is setup New Republic Pictures which has a first-look deal with Paramount.
