Mukunda Michael Dewil to helm action thriller
Pic follows a special ops officer as he attempts to free the U.S. Vice President, who is being held hostage by terrorists in a cable car. Pic is set on Cape Town’s Table Mountain in South Africa.
Pic is also penned by Dewil, who previously helmed “Vehicle 19,” which toplined “Fast & Furious” thesp Paul Walker, and was picked up in the States by Ketchup Entertainment.
K5 co-founders Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur, who negotiated the “Drop” deal, promise “jaw-dropping stunts at dizzying heights,” and said the pic was targeted at auds seeking a “Friday night adrenalin rush.”
“Drop” is now casting.
