“Penny Dreadful” star Josh Hartnett is set to topline the true story police thriller “Gut Instinct” for Caramel Films and Mednick Productions.
Daniel Roby (“Funktown,” “White Skin”) directs from his own script which involves three interconnected stories all set in 1989. One involves an ex-heroin junkie who gets trapped by a crime organization to set up a drug deal in Thailand.
Another follows an undercover cop who is humiliated and decides to take a shortcut to enhance the performance of his team. The third has Hartnett as an investigative reporter forced to re-evaluate his methods after the birth of his first child.
Filming is slated to begin April in Montreal, Vancouver and Thailand.
