Well, this sounds interesting, X-Men: Apocalypse’s Olivia Mann will be starring alongside Oscar-winner Helen Hunt, The Maze Runner’s Kaya Scodelario and The Hunger Games Josh Hutcherson in Die in a Gunfight – a film being marketed as an action romance and safe to say, aimed at young adult audiences.
The story will follow two star-crossed lovers – Ben (Hutcherson) and Mary (Scodelario), who share an eagerness to break from the confines of their lives that fuels their passion for each other and leads to an all-out struggle for their love against a backdrop of corporate espionage, revenge, and a long-standing feud between their families.
Die in a Gunfight will be directed by Collin Schiffli, in what could be only his third feature-length project. Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp writers, Gabriel Ferrari and Andrew Barrer have penned the screenplay.
Tom Butterfield, Mark Gordon, and Sunday Night’s Allyson Seeger are the producers while Sara Smith of Mark Gordon will be an executive producer.
The What Women Want star, Helen Hunt can currently be seen in the TV series Shots fired in which she plays Governor Patricia Eamons alongside Richard Dreyfuss and Sanaa Lathan. Hunt can also be seen in I Love You, Daddy, Live Like Line and Candy Jar in 2017.
