Mackie, Grillo To Lead “Point Blank” Remake

Anthony Mackie is nearing a deal to star in Netflix’s feature remake of Fred Cavaye‘s $12 million-budgeted 2010 crime drama “Point Blank” at War Party and Gaumont.

Mackie will play a nurse who is forced to spring a wounded murder suspect (Grillo) from the hospital when the man’s brother kidnaps his pregnant wife and wants to make a trade.

Joe Lynch (“Mayhem,” “Everly”) is directing from a script by Adam G. Simon (“Man Down”) with Grillo and Joe Carnahan producing. Filming begins this summer.
