Boundless Pictures has announced that British action star Scott Adkins has signed on for the lead role in the upcoming action film The Returner, which is being directed by William Kaufman (Sinners and Saints) from a script by Chad Law (Drive Hard).
“Scott Adkins is one of the most dynamic and talented artists working in film today. He brings so much to this role, not only in terms of his physicality, but his great intensity and presence as an actor. We are incredibly excited to have him in the lead role,” said Boundless co-founder Brandon Burrows, “The Returner is pitch perfect for our Firebrand label. The picture offers that fierce, thrilling, and elevated genre story and characters we look for. We look forward to sharing this unique and un-compromising story with Audiences everywhere.”
THE RETURNER follows John Piper, the owner of a speakeasy who, after refusing to carry Al Capone’s liquor during Prohibition, is brutally murdered, along with his family, by Capone and his gang. Piper mysteriously returns from death, a revenant, with nine lives to exact his vengeance, find peace and perhaps alter the course of history as we know it.
