“Parkland” writer-director Peter Landesman is set to rewrite and direct the espionage revenge thriller “Down By The River” at Bluegrass Films.
The story kicks off when a former undercover agent turned high-level DEA official discovers his younger brother murdered in broad daylight in El Paso.
He learns the hit was ordered by a drug kingpin in Juarez, possibly as retribution for the official’s past actions. So, he sets off for revenge against both the kingpin and the DEA for putting him in this situation.
Landesman will rewrite a script by Henry Bean. Scott Stuber is set to produce.
