British-Nigerian actor and producer John Boyega, who is well known for his film Star Wars, will be featured in IRA thriller Borderland along with Jodie Turner-Smith, Jack Reynor and Felicity Jones. However, there are reports which suggest that Thomas and Charlie Guard are on board to helm the film.
The upcoming anticipated movie’s plot is about the Irish paramilitary soldier Michael, the character which will be played by Midsommar star Reynor. After a border ambush, he witnesses the shooting of his pregnant wife at the hands of a SAS sergeant named Tempest; a character will be played by Boyega. Then it follows the mission of Michael to hunt down Tempest for taking revenge of his wife’s death.
According to the reports, “Borderland” has been co-written by the Guard Brothers along with BAFTA-nominee Ronan Bennett. This upcoming thriller is based on the book titled “The Road To Balcombe Street”, which is written by Steven S. Moysey.
Guard Brothers said in one of their statements that ” ‘Borderland’ is a vengeance-fuelled chase movie, fusing some pulse ticking action with a powerful message for our times”. They also added that ‘We’re thrilled that the script, driven as much by character as it is by plot, has attracted such a first-rate cast.”
Most famous cinematographer Erik Wilson who is known for his work in live-action animated comedy film Paddington 2 would be the director of photography. While, this film will be produced by famous producer Chris Coen who is known for Funny Games, Rebecca Brown, Felicity Jones’s Piecrust Productions and Rocket Science. And Jones will be the executive producer.
While the Producer Chris Coen stated that “It’s been a pleasure working with Rocket Science putting the film together and I couldn’t be more excited to get this prodigious project into production later this year.” And then he added that” The Guard Brothers make for a terrific team who are assembling a formidable cast and crew.”
