Dan Casey (Secrets Of Fenville, The Death Of Michael Smith) is poised to make his next directorial move on action thriller, Heroine. Monday’s report at THR lists actor Winston Duke (Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War) will star in the film now currently set to shoot in the Spring.
According to the report, Heroine foresees the story of a mother, a domestic abuse survivor who finds herself in danger when she witness an Aryan gang kidapping only after just moving into her new neighborhood. The aforementioned actor who memorably played M’Baku in the current MCU will tackle the role of her neighbor, a man who has crafted his own metal suit for the purpose of fighting crime and now has his sights set on the Aryans.
Matt Kaplan (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before) is producing the film at Ace Entertainment for Paramount Players. Casey is best known of late for penning the action adventure sci-fi, Kin, adapted from the Baker brothers’ head-turning 2014 sci-fi short, “Bag Man”.
Duke was also reported over the summer to covet the title role for Kimbo Slice biopic, Backyard Legend, for Bee Holder Productions and Webros Entertainment.
