Jamie Foxx, Maika Monroe & more set for God Is A Bullet adaptation
After languishing in development hell for over a decade, an
adaptation of Boston Teran's celebrated thriller novel God Is A
Bullet is gaining new ground as Nick Cassavetes (Prisoners of the
Ghostland) is set in the writer/director's chair and has begun
building an ensemble roster including Jamie Foxx, Maika Monroe and
"I am excited to get God Is A Bullet into production with my friend
and producer/financer, Michael Mendelsohn," Cassavetes said in a
statement. "It's a magnificent, ultra-dark work that is somehow
both intensely frightening and literate, inspired by true events,
with the most amazing cast of actors."
In addition to Foxx (Soul) and Monroe (The Stranger), the full
roster for the cast is currently set to include two-time Emmy
nominee Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones, The Silencing),
Emmy nominee January Jones (Mad Men, Spinning Out) and Andrew Dice
Clay (A Star is Born).
When vice detective Bob Hightower (Coster-Waldau) finds his ex-wife
murdered and daughter kidnapped by a satanic cult - Bob is
frustrated by bumbling botched official investigations. Bob quits
the police force, gets tattoos, and infiltrates the cult to hunt
down the charismatic cult leader, Cyrus, with the help of the
cult's only female victim escapee, the brilliantly damaged, Case
Hardin (Monroe). Bob is lead down the rabbit hole to save his
daughter and Case seizes the opportunity to claim back her power
from the cult that took so much away from her.
The film is set to be produced by Mendelsohn via Patriot Pictures
alongside Don Allen, while Kim H. Winther and Jim Steele are set
to co-produce and Sidney Kimmel, Chuck Pacheco, Paul Johansson and
Natalie Perrotta are attached to executive produce.
Pre-production on God Is A Bullet is currently underway in Mexico
City, Mexico and production is currently slated to begin on May 24,
with XYZ Films representing worldwide sales on the project while
Mendelsohn's Union Patriot Capital Management is fully financing.
An adaptation of the novel was first announced in the late '00s
with Ehren Kruger (Dumbo, Top Gun: Maverick) set to pen and
co-produce, though it appears that project has perished in
