Early Details on Rubicon from Relativity and Atlas
"Revenge Thriller" -- two words that can mean horror or just an action-packed heavy drama, but considering the pedigree of the people involved in the recently announced Rubicon, we thought we'd pass on the info just in case it leans more toward the former than the latter.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Relativity Media is partnering with Atlas Entertainment for Rubicon, a revenge thriller from Ric Roman Waugh and Michael A. Lerner. Waugh (pictured here with Val Kilmer) will also direct. Plot details are being kept submerged, but it is female-driven and set in Mexico.
Waugh's background is in stunt work, having appeared in films ranging from John Carpenter's They Live to The Crow to the 1988 remake of The Blob. Most recently he wrote and directed Felon starring Stephen Dorff, Marisol Nichols, and Val Kilmer. Lerner is a former war correspondent who previously wrote and co-directed Deadlines starring Stephen (True Blood) Moyer and Anne (La Femme Nikita) Parillaud.
We'll be keeping an eye on Rubicon and will let you know which side of the proverbial coin it lands on as soon as more details are revealed.
