GOD IS A BULLET Hails A June Arrival With The Official Poster
Patriot Pictures and XYZ Films have brought on Wayward Entertainment to release Nick Cassavetes’s newest thriller, God Is A Bullet. The trio have released a first look still which you can view in the lead just beneath, along with the official poster at the bottom of the page.
Cassavetes wrote and directed the pic inspired by true events and based on the novel of the same name by Boston Teran. The film follows detective Bob Hightower (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), who finds his ex-wife murdered and his daughter kidnapped by an insidious cult. Bob takes matters into his own hands and infiltrates the secretive cult to try to save his daughter. With the help of the cult’s only female victim escapee, Case Hardin (Maika Monroe), Bob and Case go down the rabbit hole with The Ferryman (Jamie Foxx) to save his daughter and find closure for Case from the cult – and its maniacal leader (Karl Glusman) – that took so much away from her.
Michael Mendelsohn produced the pic for Patriot Pictures along with Donald V. Allen. Kim H. Winther and Jim Steele are co-produced with Natalie Perrotta, Paul Johansson, Sidney Kimmel, and Foxx exec producing, next to Chuck Pacheco, Jim Steele, Santiago García Galván.
Mendelsohn’s Union Patriot Capital Management fully financed the film.
“We are looking forward to working with Wayward and are so excited that GOD IS A BULLET will be hitting theaters nationwide this summer. Audiences are back and want to see films that keep them on the edge. Nick and I, with an amazing, multi-national cast and crew, are excited to release a badass, action-packed revenge classic, made to be enjoyed on the big screen” said Mendelsohn.
“I’ve been trying to tell this great story for the last 18+ years. It’s tough, violent, has two flawed and fantastic characters, and absolutely pulls no punches. I love it! There’s nothing else out there like it, not even close!” added Cassavetes.
XYZ Films is handling global sales for the Patriot Pictures production. XYZ and Patriot previously collaborated on Synchronic (TIFF 2019) with Jamie Dornan and Anthony Mackie, Well Go USA release Cut Throat City (SXSW 2020) starring Shameik Moore, Ethan Hawke and Wesley Snipes, and the Sundance world premiere (2021) entry Prisoners Of The Ghostland starring Nicolas Cage and Tak Sakaguchi.
