Part John Woo violence, part Guy Ritchie comedy and part 70s exploitation… get ready for Free Fire, an upcoming shoot ’em flick produced by Martin Scorsese.
Official: Acclaimed filmmaker Ben Wheatley (High Rise) propels the audience into quite possibly the most epic shootout ever seen on film as he crafts a spectacular parody of the insanity of gun violence. Everyone’s got a gun, and absolutely no one is in control.
Set in a colorful yet gritty 1970s Boston, Free Fire opens with Justine (Brie Larson) and her wise-cracking associate (Armie Hammer) arranging a weapons deal in a deserted warehouse between an IRA arms buyer (Cillian Murphy) and shifty gun runner Vernon (Sharlto Copley). What starts as a polite exchange soon becomes a full-on Battle Royale (via A24).
Free Fire hits theaters on April 21, 2017. If you haven’t yet, be sure to check out the film’s Trailer below:
