The action thriller Headshot, which stars The Raid‘s Iko Uwais, has been picked up by XYZ Films and Vertical Entertainment for a N. American co-release theatrical run as well as global VOD platform distribution, according to Deadline.
“‘Headshot’ follows an amnesiac (Iko Uwais) who washes ashore with a serious and mysterious head injury. His past comes back to haunt him shortly after being nursed back to health by a young doctor (Chelsea Islan).”
As Brad noted previously, the film has a strong The Bourne Identity vibe, although this obviously crosses into action that makes Bourne pale in comparison.
Headshot is directed by Macabre‘s Mo Brothers (Timo Tjahjanto and Kimo Stamboel) and stars Iko Uwais, Chelsea Islan, Julie Estelle, and Sunny Pang. The film is based on a script by Tjahjanto, and is produced by Mike Wiluan, Wicky Olindo, Sukdev Singh and Shinjiro Nishimura.
Bloody Disgusting distributed Macabre as part of our BD Selects line. Timo Tjahjanto also co-directed the V/H/S/2 segment, “Safe Haven”, with The Raid‘s Gareth Evans.
