The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Jason Patric is set to star in immigrant drama Bonded from writer-director Mohit Ramchandani.
Bonded focuses on a young Mexican teenager who is enslaved, beaten and forced to work in the squalor of a sweatshop with other illegal immigrants after being brought to the U.S as part of a premier soccer camp.
Jason Patric (whose recent credits include The Yellow Birds and Gangster Land) will be playing the role of Officer Stevens, a police officer weathered by his own adversity and self-loathing and who doesn’t always play by the rules. The film is based on true events around Los Angeles sweatshops.
Lucas Akoskin and Luke Daniels will serve as producers on the project, while Jorge Vergara will serve as an executive producer.
