Paul Walker & Simon West Seek “Protection”

Paul Walker is in talks to play the male lead and Simon West (“Con Air”) is in talks to direct the thriller “Protection” says Risky Biz Blog.

The story is about a twenty-one-year-old daughter of a Mexican judge who’s targeted by mob types after she sees them kill her father and other family members.

The pair must stay on the run through dodgy places on both sides of the border, while an agent tries to protect her and the bad guy is hot on her trail.

West’s involvement depends on his commitment to the remake of the Charles Bronson thriller “The Mechanic”. The project is currently being sold at Cannes.
