‘Westworld’ actor Luke Hemsworth and ‘This Is Us’ star Milo Ventimiglia will star alongside Oscar-winning actor Russell Crowe in the action-thriller ‘Land of Bad.’
Actors Ricky Whittle, Daniel MacPherson and Chika Ikogwe are also joining the film’s cast, according to entertainment news portal Deadline.
The film is directed by Will Eubank, who also co-wrote the screenplay with David Frigerio. Eubank is known for films such as ”The Signal” and Kristen Stewart-starrer ”Underwater”.
Also starring Liam Hemsworth, ”Land of Bad” follows Reaper (Crowe), an Air Force drone pilot supporting a Delta Force special ops mission in the southern Philippines.
After the mission goes horribly wrong, Reaper has 48 hours to fix what turned into a savage rescue operation. The Tier-One team, led by Cpt. Sucre (Ventimiglia) and Sgt. Abel (Luke Hemsworth) is redeployed to return and retrieve their captured man and the asset. They are joined by Kinney (Liam Hemsworth), a green Air Force JTAC officer, who is thrust into the middle of a high-stakes extraction. But the ground mission suddenly turns into a full-scale battle when the team is discovered by the enemy. With no weapons and no communication other than the drone above, Reaper becomes the young operator’s only ticket out.
The film will begin filming in Australia later this month.
It is produced by David Frigerio of Broken Open Pictures, Eubank, Adam Beasley of Volition Media Partners and Michael Jefferson, RU Robot and Highland Film Group.
