Neil Marshall Will Hand Down THE SENTENCE For Applebox
Action thriller scripting duo Creighton Rothberger and Katrin Benedikt (Olympus Has Fallen, London Has Fallen) are joining the latest production heading into pure revenge-driven sci-fi territory with the new film, The Sentence. Neil Marshall, off the stellar successes of shows like Game Of Thrones and Black Sails, as well as films like post-apocalyptic actioner, Doomsday in 2008 and 2010 period thriller Centurion, is on board to direct the film for Applebox Entertainment.
There are no plot details yet although Deadline has it on good word that film is being developed in the vein of Death Wish, which in and of itself speaks heavily to the action fanbase. In turn, one has to ask who is starring in this film for it it earn such hype? There’s no question that Marshall is a suitable helmer for this project, although can’t think of anyone off the top of my head for who would star. Rest assured, if there’s a suitable actor as badass as the late Charles Bronson was during his time to match the inspired vision, I’m sure they will find him…or her (nothing wrong with a female lead).
EuropaCorp is fully financing the film, and that is all being said about this particular project. Stay tuned for more info!
