Action star and John Wick 4 actor Scott Adkins is now set to lead the upcoming action thriller Violence of Action alongside Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse actor Cam Gigandet. The new film is being directed by Will Kaufman, who has helmed projects such as One in the Chamber starring Cuba Gooding Jr. and Dolph Lundgren. The script is penned by Josh Ridgway and Chad Law, the latter of which has previously written other films starring Adkins, including Close Range, and the upcoming Section Eight. Andrew Lewis, Isaac Lewis, Jon Wroblewski and Christian Sosa are producing the new project.
Per THR, Adkins and Gigandet have joined the film’s cast in as yet unconfirmed roles. According to the report, the story of Violence of Action centers on a former SEAL who is “tormented by a decision he made in Afghanistan,” before becoming a vigilante who is “brutally taking down a drug gang that is terrorizing his neighborhood.” Filming on the intense action feature is set to begin this fall in New Orleans.

Regardless, the stars are well-versed in the action/thriller genre. In addition to his Violence of Action role, Adkins will next be seen in the Keanu Reeves-led, highly anticipated John Wick 4, and Jamie Foxx’s Netflix action film Day Shift. Former Twilight star Gigandet is next set to appear in Scott Windhauser’s Deep Six with Smallville‘s Tom Welling. Meanwhile, writing and directing duo Kaufman and Law, also recently collaborated on another Gigandet-led film, Shrapnel. With such an experienced collection of genre stars, writers and director, Violence of Action is sure to deliver something memorable that action fans everywhere will enjoy.
