Another indie project is coming and this time it’s some kind of an action thriller titled The Jesuit
. As you already see from our title, Paz Vega
is set to star next to the previously announced Jose Maria Yazpik
who will play the lead. If you ask me, the most interesting thing about this film is that Alfonso Pineda Ulloa
will drect it from the script written by Paul Schrader
! And we all know who Schrader is, right?
Well, if Taxi Driver
, Raging Bull
or American Gigolo
mean nothing to you… But, back to The Jesuit
! The movie will center on a man who has been imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit.
When his wife is killed and his son kidnapped and taken to Mexico, he devises a dangerous plan to rescue the boy and avenge her death.
Jose Maria Yazpik
is on board to star as that guy, Paz Vega
will play his ex-wife, while Shannyn Sossamon
is also set to star as the woman he hires to masquerade as his wife during his quest for revenge.
Argonautas Producciones is producing the film, which starts filming this month in Mexico.
