Grillo Joins “No Man’s Land,” “Jiu-Jitsu”

Grillo Knapp To Lead Black And Blue

Frank Grillo (“The Grey”) and Jake Allyn (“The Quad”) will play father-and-son Texas ranchers in the modern western drama “No Man’s Land” which hails from director Conor Allyn and Margate House Films.

Allyn and David Barraza Ibanez penned the script inspired by the real-life ‘no man’s land’ between the U.S.- Mexico border on the Rio Grande and the U.S. ‘hard border’ fences to the north.

In the film, a father-son vigilante patrol is thrust into chaos after Jackson Greer (Allyn) accidentally kills an immigrant boy. When his father (Grillo) tries to take the blame, Jackson flees south on horseback, becoming a gringo ‘illegal alien’ in Mexico.

Chased by Texas Rangers and Mexican federales, Jackson embarks on a pilgrimage to seek forgiveness from the dead boy’s vengeful father (Jorge Jimenez) only to fall in love with the land he was taught to hate.

Grillo has also joined the cast of Dimitri Logothetis’ martial arts actioneer “Jiu Jitsu” which is building up a good cast including Nicolas Cage, Tony Jaa, Alain Moussi, Rick Yune, Marie Avgeropoulos and JuJu Chan.

In that film, an ancient order of expert Jiu Jitsu fighters faces a vicious alien in a battle to protect Earth. For thousands of years, the fighters that protect Earth have played by the rules during this battles which take place every six year.

That changes however when a celebrated war hero is defeated by Brax, the Alien invader – leaving the future of humanity in the balance. Filming begins June 24th.
