A film starring Charlie Hunnam and Mel Gibson, based on the novels of Howard Michael Gould, will premiere in February, Deadline reports.
Production company RLJE will release Last Looks next year. The movie is adapted from Gould’s three novels featuring an ex–Los Angeles police detective named Charlie Waldo, Last Looks, Below the Line, and Pay or Play.
Hunnam will play Waldo in the movie, with Gibson starring as a drunken actor suspected of killing his wife. Other cast members include Rupert Friend (The Death of Stalin), Morena Baccarin (Deadpool), Lucy Fry (Bright), Dominic Monaghan (The Lord of the Rings), and Cliff Smith (The Cobbler).
Gould wrote the screenplay for the movie; he previously co-wrote the film Mr. 3000. Tim Kirkby (Action Point) directed the film, which is produced by Brad Feinstein, Andrew Lazar, Steven Shainberg, and Christina Weiss Lurie.
Mark Ward, RLJE’s chief acquisitions officer, told Deadline, “We’re delighted to release Last Looks next year. We cannot wait to work with the film’s amazing cast who will take audiences through this unique ‘whodunit’ adventure.”
The film will be released simultaneously in theaters and on video-on-demand.
