Frank Grillo’s POINT BLANK Remake Likely To Nab Anthony Mackie

Start getting ready for this one.

While I like Anthony Mackie, I’m not sure his involvement with the upcoming remake of French thriller Point Blank (which is great, by the way) offers enough juice for its own news item. Nevertheless, let’s go ahead and get that out of the way. Anthony Mackie is about to sign on to co-star in the upcoming remake of French thriller Point Blank (which is great, I mean it).

But in spirit, this is more a reminder that a remake of French thriller Point Blank (the original is pretty good) is even happening. I quite excited about it. Frank Grillo will star, Joe Lynch is directing and Joe Carnahan is producing with Grillo. The film will be cheap and is bound for Netflix. I’m happy about all that! I like all those people and the original film (French thriller Point Blank).

It has been a while since we heard anything about it, however, so I’m glad this Anthony Mackie thing gave me an opportunity to bring it up. The film should start production this summer, so get ready.
