Frank Grillo, Jamie Bell, Margaret Qualley and James Badge Dale are set to star in Tim Sutton’s gritty indie thriller “Donnybrook” for Rumble Films and BackUp Dilms.
The story follows two men who try to get to a legendary backcountry bare-knuckle brawl where the winner gets $100,000. Bell is Jarhead Earl, a man who wants to help his family by competing in the tournament.
Grillo will play hot-tempered and murderous drug dealer Chainsaw Angus with Qualley as his sister. Badge Dale will play a drug-addicted crooked cop.
David Lancaster will produce and filming begins Monday in Cincinnati.
