Pierce Brosnan, who just recently completed Martin Campbell’s The Foreigner opposite Jackie Chan, has signed on to Scott Mann’s actioner Final Score with Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy). Final Score, written by the brothers Lynch and Jonathan Frank, takes place at a major sporting event when stadium is suddenly seized by a group of heavily armed criminals demanding ransom. An ex-soldier must use all his military skills to save the 35,000 capacity crowd, one of which is the daughter of his fallen comrade. The project will go before the cameras in London on Aug. 8th.
Alexandra Dinu (Red Valentine, Island) and Julian Cheung (The Grandmaster) also star. The main location for Final Score will be at the world-renowned Upton Park Stadium — a famous London landmark that has been the home of Premier League soccer club West Ham United for over 100 years. The venue will be handed over to a British property developer following production.
Signature Entertainment’s Marc Goldberg is producing alongside The Fyzz Facility’s Robert Jones, James Harris, Mark Lane, and Wayne Marc Godfrey. Babak Eftekhari will co-produce.
