As police policy and incidents of brutality continue to be hot topics, particularly in the US, news arrives via The Hollywood Reporter that Bone Tomahawk (2015) director S. Craig Zahler is using the subject matter to fuel a new thriller, with Mel Gibson and his Hacksaw Ridge cast member Vince Vaughn set reunite for Dragged Across Concrete.
Craig Zahler – who recently worked with Vaughn on Brawl In Cell Block 99 – is in the director's chair, and wrote the script. The story finds two police officers (Gibson as the old timer and Vaughn as his volatile younger partner) who are suspended when a video of their overly violent tactics is plastered across the internet and on news channels.
With their income suspended and funds running low, they double down on the bad behaviour and head for the criminal underworld. But there, they find far more than they wanted...
Vaughn has recently worked on Roland Joffé's (The Mission) The Forgiven, while Gibson has been shooting The Professor And The Madman.
