Variety is exclusively reporting that Frank Grillo, Jake Allyn and Jorge A. Jimenez are set to star in Conor Allyn’s modern western drama No Man’s Land, which is inspired by the real-life ‘no man’s land’ between the U.S-Mexican border on the Rio Grande and the U.S ‘hard border’ fences to the north.
The focus of the story is on a father-and son Texas ranchers turned vigilante patrol that is thrust into chaos after Jackson Geer accidentally kills an immigrant boy. When his father Bill tries to take the blame, Jackson flees south on horseback, becoming a gringo ‘illegal alien’ in Mexico. Chased by Texas Rangers and Mexican federales, Jackson embarks on a pilgrimage to seek forgiveness from the dead boy’s vengeful father only to fall in love with the land he was taught to hate.
Frank Grillo (whose credits include Donnybrook and Point Blank) will be playing the role of Bill Greer, Jake Allyn (whose credits include The Quad and Hidden In Plain Sight) will be playing the role of Jackson Greer and Jorge A. Jimenez (whose credits include Narcos and Alita: Battle Angel) will be playing the role of the vengeful father Gustavo.
Conor Allyn is directing the film, based on the script he co-wrote alongside David Barraza Ibañez. Margate House Films will be producing the project in partnership with Bluegrass Pictures and the State of Guanajuato, Mexico. Conor Allyn will be producing alongside Jake Allyn, Rob Allyn and Joel Shapiro. Frank Grillo will serve as executive producer alongside Victor Almeida, Simon Fawcett and Araceli Velazquez.
Also starring in No Man’s Land are Andie MacDowell, Alex MacNicoll, George Lopez, Esmeralda Pimentel, Ofelia Medina, Andrés Delgado, Alessio Valentini and Iván Aragón.
