“Scott in his very own Punisher”
One key ingredient when pitching projects at any film market usually includes some kind of concept art. Bleiberg Entertainment is in Berlin with their own package which also consists of William Kaufman’s latest, Vigilante, which wrangled through a ton of unease earlier this month when fan sites spilled the beans.
Scott Adkins (Universal Soldier: Day Of Reckoning, Undisputed film series) is set to star in the flick rejoining Kaufman long since 2016’s Jarhead: The Siege, and Daylight’s End screenwriter Chad Law. With Vigilante making the rounds at this year’s EFM, there’s no question with the sales art’s blaring similarities to the pre-sales art for Jesse Johnson’s hit 2019 thriller, Avengement.
Vigilante is described as Taxi Driver meets The Punisher, Adkins will play a disgraced soldier who wages war against the city’s most dangerous criminals, only to end up endangering the lives of the very same people he initially set out to help protect. “This is an old-school unapologetically brutal, testosterone-fueled thrill ride.” Kaufman tells FCSyndicate. “This film will definitely be one of my very best. It’s 100% Scott and I doing our thing.
Below is the first concept art. We recognize Scott’s photo as an image from Universal Soldier, Day of Reckoning.
