'2 GUNS' Director To Helm Filipino Drama ON THE JOB

Sources indicated this week that filmmaker Baltasar Kormakur is being tapped to bring co-writer and director Erik Matti's Filipino crime drama, On The Job, to North American audiences for a remake. The announcement originally came in about a week prior to today's news, but we now know that XYZ Films, the men and women backing The Raid 2 and action star Joe Taslim's upcoming function in The Night Comes For Us, will be making along with Kormakur.

The news comes just less than a month soon after Matti's film effectively caught the consideration of North American movie distributor, Properly Go USA.

Erik Matti's film, co-written by Michiko Yamamoto, stars Gerald Anderson, Joel Torre, Piolo Pascual, and Joey Marquez, based on real-life events involving recent stories of political corruption, with politicians tied to mobsters, and organized hits making use of day-release prisoners as assassins. Star Cinema is releasing the film in the Philippines this July, with Nicely Go USA theatrically releasing the film for limited screens in North America this Fall.

Kormakur's subsequent film, two Guns opens nationwide on August 2, 2013.

Check out the Cannes Film Festival trailer for the movie under amd share your thoughts!
