Actor Robert Bronzi has had a stellar outing in the last several years after literally becoming the latest face for nostalgic action fans. His dead-ringer likeness to a certain late film legend has drawn appeal to films like Death Kiss and Once Upon A Time In Deadwood, as well as Escape From Death Block 13, and he’ll soon be following up with The Gardener from Scott Jeffrey.
Bronzi will star from a story by Jeff Miller and screenplay by Ben Demaree, that focuses on Peter, an immigrant worker in England whose quiet, idyllic life as a gardener at manor house will find him turning up the volume, and employing his old skills to save the family he works for from home invaders. Pic hails from Proportion Productions whose Jeffrey will produce along with Rebecca J. Matthews with cameras expected to shoot in February.
Jeffrey and Matthews are currently in post-production after recently wrapping their shoot on upcoming actioner, HellKat, which they directed together, as well as produced. That project has co-stars, actors A.J. Blackwell and Michael Hoad who also join The Gardener, with Hoad serving as action director. The two have worked respectively as actor and director/fight choreographer on Hoad’s own emerging film roster of late, including shortfilms Shoguns Of Gymbox, and Blood Choke Retribution.
