Pierce Brosnan and his 26-year-old son Sean Brosnan are set to team for the thriller “Bonded” for Pierce’s Irish DreamTime company reports The Wrap.
Mo Ramchandani is directing and penned the script based on true events that took place in El Monte, California in the early 1990’s.
The story follows a Mexican teenager named Jesus who is sold by his father and smuggled into America. Forced to work as a bonded slave labourer in an L.A. sweatshop, he befriends a young woman named Elena.
When she is kidnapped by a sex trafficker, Jesus escapes and attempts to rescue her. Mo is in the midst of casting the male lead. Filming kicks off in September.
