Justin Kroll at Variety is adding to the mix some casting hype for Conor Allyn’s new modern western drama, No Man’s Land. Therein lies the intrigue and relevant nature of the film’s story scripted and screenwritten with Allyn and co-scribe David Barraza Ibañez as it’s apparently inspired by the real-life “no man’s land” between the U.S.- Mexico border on the Rio Grande and the U.S. “hard border” fences to the north.
No Man’s Land will see actor Jake Allyn in the role of Jackson Greer, one-half of a father/son vigilante patrol paired with his father, played by Frank Grillo. Jackson must ride south of the border when he accidentally kills an immigrant son and his father tries to take the blame. With Texas Rangers and Mexican federales in hot pursuit, Jackson, now a “gringo” on the run, finds himself on a pilgrimage that puts him at peace with the land he was taught to hate while in search of the forgiveness from the dead boy’s vengeful father, played by Jorge Jimenez.
No Man’s Land hails from producers at Margate House Films and Bluegrass Pictures along with the State of Guanajuato, Mexico. Rob Allyn will produce with the director, and actor Allyn, as will Joel Shapiro. Grillo, whose 2019 docket is loaded with a “stay busy” list of gigs including The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, his recent casting on Jiu-Jitsu and upcoming Point Blank, is exec producing with Victor Almeida, Simon Fawcett and Araceli Velazquez.
