In War Pigs, written by Nick Ball and John Niven, a group of disillusioned ex-marines go on one last mission to avenge the murder of one of their own by a cartel that also stole millions of dollars in drug money. Colin Farrell plays Drex and Mel Gibson plays The Pastor.
Tommy Wirkola told Altaposten: “It’s crazy to be making a movie with such experienced and skilled people, and I look forward to filming.” He added to VG: “I’m very excited. I have friends who have recently worked with (Mel Gibson) and they only had very nice things to say.”
War Pigs is slated to begin production this October.
