Thanks to effects artist Tate Steinsiek, we’ve got a first look at Vince Vaughn and Mel Gibson in Dragged Across Concrete, the new movie from Bone Tomahawk and Brawl in Cell Block 99 director S. Craig Zahler, which Steinsiek describes as “by FAR the most violent film I’ve ever done”. Check it out here…
I cannot wait for the world to see this one. Zahler is a madman of the finest stock… get ready world for DRAGGED! As usual, I couldn’t have done it without my insanely talented FXMU crew @ianvcromer @sandman_fx @wayneandersondesigns @kriskobzina @brookebarkermua and a plethora of trauma goodness from the gods of latex over at @rbfx #draggedacrossconcrete #scraigzahler #cinestate #tatesteinsiek #melgibson #vincevaughn
What bad things will good men do for their families?
A stolid, old guard policeman, Ridgeman (Mel Gibson) and his volatile younger partner, Anthony (Vince Vaughn), find themselves suspended when a video of them strong-arming a suspect becomes the media’s special du jour. Low on cash and with no other options, these two embittered soldiers descend into the criminal underworld to gain their just due.
On the other side of the law, Henry Jones comes home from years in prison to find his mother and disabled brother living in squalor. The ex-convict needs a way to help and to this end, his childhood friend Biscuit introduces him to a ruthless crime boss whose ambitious plans put him and his pal in direct conflict with the two renegade officers.
In the hardboiled world of DRAGGED ACROSS CONCRETE, who lives, who dies, and who gets rich is a fate written in bullets.”
Dragged Across Concrete is set to premiere at the Venice Film Festival next month, and sees Vince Vaughn and Mel Gibson starring alongside Laurie Holden, Jennifer Carpenter, Fred Melamed, Tory Kittles, Michael Jai White, Udo Kier, Thomas Kretschman, Tattiawna Jones and Myles Truitt.
