Academy Award winner Mel Gibson (Braveheart, Hacksaw Ridge), Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) and Eiza González (Baby Driver, upcoming Welcome to Marwen) are attached to star in Tim Kirkby’s (Fleabag, Brockmire, Veep) Waldo.
The action-packed thriller follows brilliant ex-detective gone rogue Charlie Waldo, and is based on the novel Last Looks, a razor-sharp, exquisitely paced, compelling thriller written by Howard Gould and published by Dutton. The sequel, Below the Line, is set to be released in Summer 2019.
Waldo introduces a new and compelling hero in disgraced former LAPD detective Charlie Waldo, currently living the life of a minimalist in the woods. His quiet life comes to a startling halt when he is roped back into working as a private eye to investigate the murder of an eccentric television star’s wife. Filming is set to commence in Q1 of next year.
Andrew Lazar, Christina Weiss Lurie and Steve Shainberg will produce. IMR International is handling foreign sales, which will launch at the American Film Market this week. CAA Media Finance is handling the US rights.
Filming is expected to start in early 2019.
