Voltage Pictures launched international sales at the Cannes Film Festival. Shooting is set for Los Angeles in late June.

Willis’ character, a contemporary throwback to hard-boiled Los Angeles detectives, will see his professional and personal worlds collide when his dog Buddy is stolen by a notorious gang. He faces off against ruthless gang leaders, angry Samoan brothers, a loan shark and his goons and many other shady characters in his effort to get Buddy back.

The film will be directed by Mark and Robb Cullen. Mark and Robb Cullen, Nicolas Chartier, Zev Foreman and Laura Ford will produce.

Momoa will play a gang leader, while Middleditch will portray a subordinate in Willis’ operation. Janssen will play Willis’ sister-in-law.

The news was first reported by the Hollywood Reporter.
