Frank Grillo is on a mean horror streak, adding yet another genre film to his Cannes slate. Deadline announced today that Grillo will topline the horror-thriller Merciless, directed by Skylines franchise filmmaker Liam O’Donnell.
In Merciless, when his wife is possessed by a malevolent spirit, the government’s top interrogator seeks vengeance on those who were closest to the entity in its previous life in order to drive it out of her body only to discover that everything is not what it appears to be.
Renee Tab, Pierre Morel and Tuffin will produce alongside Andy Schefter for Sentient Pictures International, which is shopping the film in Cannes. Tuffin developed the story with The Cooler writer Frank Hannah, who wrote the script.
Frank Grillo, who appeared in The Purge: Anarchy, The Purge: Election Year, and Beyond Skyline, is also starring in the Steven C. Miller-directed werewolf horror film Year 2, the Charles Manson-inspired Man’s Son, and also Session 9 director Brad Anderson’s The Dagon.
Principal photography is set to commence on location in Alabama in August 2022.
