Sierra/Affinity is handling international sales of Stingray, with WME Global representing U.S. rights.
Marvel’s Punisher is already underway for Netflix but actor Jon Bernthal still has plenty of work ahead of him as one of the best actors to put in front of a camera these days. The co-star of actor Ben Affleck’s latest, The Accountant, is now poised to star in Anthony Hayes’s new crime thriller, Stingray with production set for April in Canada next year.
Hayes co-wrote the script and is producing with John and Michael Schwarz, for which Bernthal will play a man entangled in a blood debt and forced in a matter of two days to kill one of his own family after accidently killing the brother of a powerful crime boss. The film is readying for the floor at the American Film Market next month.
