New action-thriller GASOLINE ALLEY starring Bruce Willis, Luke Wilson, Devon Sawa - Highland Film Group handling international

Golden Globe winner Bruce Willis (Universal Pictures’ Glass, Twentieth Century Fox’s Die Hard franchise), Luke Wilson (Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums, MGM’s Legally Blonde), Devon Sawa (Hunter Hunter, upcoming Black Friday) are on board to star in the new crime action-thriller Gasoline Alley, directed by Edward Drake (Cosmic Sin, Broil) from a script by Tom Sierchio (New York City International Film Festival winner The Girl Who Invented Kissing).

The film is set to start shooting in early March across the US. Highland Film Group is handling international rights and introducing the project to buyers at the virtual European Film Market.  

  

Jimmy Jayne (Sawa) is a bruised-fisted rockabilly boss-type sucked into a triple murder of three Hollywood starlets drowned in a luxury hotel pool. As the prime suspect for Homicide Detectives Freeman (Willis) and Vargas (Wilson), Jimmy takes up his own rogue investigation, bending the law in ways the police can't in order to clear his name. With the killer skating through Jimmy’s shadow, he bands together with the two Detectives to dangerously expose a truth much bigger than they had imagined.

 

"Gasoline Alley is a killer action-thriller.  It has all the ingredients for commercial success coupled with a storyline and production values that will elevate the film in the marketplace.  Our trusted worldwide partners are looking for these high energy, splashy thrillers and this film ticks all the right boxes," said Highland Film Group CEO Arianne Fraser. "Tom has written an amazing script and Edward has a one-of-a-kind vision to direct this film so we are particularly thrilled to be working with him on Gasoline Alley. The extra cool factor is brought to the film by the performances of Bruce Willis, Luke Wilson, and Devon Sawa as they embark on car chases in present-time Los Angeles and motorbike through the city in search of the killer. The film is packed with action combat scenes infused by a unique rockabilly atmosphere. It’s going to be fantastic," continued company COO Delphine Perrier.

 

"Gasoline Alley is a sensational, cutting story about Los Angeles' anti-heroes going up against the forces trusted to protect us. The phenomenal cast and crew have worked tirelessly to bring Tom Sierchio's vision to life. Cinematographer Brandon Cox (Cut Throat City), Production Designer Eric Whitney (Bruno), Line Producer Jon Keyes (Survivlaist), and all of the heads of department have my heartfelt thanks for sharing their passionate energy every single day of production. Corey Large and I are committed to working with talented artists to bring singular stories to life. I'm grateful for Devon Sawa, Bruce Willis, and Luke Wilson coming on board to tell Tom Sierchio incredible narrative about the darkest corners of modern society," said Drake.  

 

Corey Large (The November Man, Cosmic Sin) and Sierchio are producing the film with BondIt Media Capital financing. Matthew Helderman, Johnny Messner, Stephen Eads, and Highland Film Group’s Fraser and Perrier are Executive Producers.

 

One of the industry’s global superstars, Willis’ career includes blockbuster hits that include the action franchise Die Hard; Armageddon, starring alongside Ben Affleck, Liv Tyler, and Steve Buscemi; cult classics such as Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City, The Fifth Element, and The Sixth Sense, and most recently starring in the global sensation film, Glass, alongside Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, and Sarah Paulson.

 

Wilson has established himself as of one of the most versatile actors of his generation with his indelible performances in broad comedies, thoughtful dramas, and provocative independent features. Wilson's credits include Wes Anderson’s Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, and The Royal Tenenbaums; The Skeleton Twins opposite Bill Hader and Kristin Wiig; Old School with Will Ferrell and Vince Vaughn; the Legally Blonde franchise with Reese Witherspoon; the Charlie's Angels franchise with Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore; Blades of Glory and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy also with Ferrell; Mike Judge's satirical Idiocracy; the western 3:10 to Yuma; the heartwarming My Dog Skip; and Hoot, based on Carl Hiaasen's children's book of the same name. Up next, Luke can be seen starring in Ty Robert’s 12 Mighty Orphans based on the best-selling novel by the same name. He can recently be seen starring in All The Bright Places directed by Brett Haley and opposite Elle Fanning, as well as in Atom Egoyan’s feature Guest Of Honour. In television, he can most recently be seen starring in DC’s “Stargirl” for The CW.

 

Sawa is an industry veteran having got his start in such films as CasperNow and Then, and Little Giants. He soon became a household name after starring in the iconic horror franchise Final Destination as well as cult favorites Idle Hands and Slc Punk. Over the past few years, Sawa starred opposite Sylvester Stallone and Dave Bautista in Escape Plan: The Extractors, opposite John Travolta in The Fanatic, and Guy Pearce in Disturbing The Peace. Most recently, he can be seen in the highly revered IFC Midnight film Hunter Hunter. Sawa endeared himself to fans in the hit CW show Nikita alongside Maggie Q and Lyndsy Fonseca as both Owen Elliot and Sam Matthews, a Special Forces operative with multiple personalities. He also reprised his Slc Punk role in the sequel Punk's Dead much to the delight of the original film’s fans. Other credits include staring alongside John Travolta, Sharon Stone and Kate Bosworth in the independent feature Life on the Line; guest roles on Macgyver and Hawaii Five-0; and starring opposite Paula Patton in the summer series Somewhere Between

Director Drake’s credits include Cosmic Sin, starring Bruce Willis and Frank Grillo; horror-thriller Broil, starring Jonathan Lipnicki and Timothy Murphy, nominated for the Best Film Jury Award at FrightFest; and is the 2020 winner of the Austin Film Festival Screenwriting Award (Dramatic) for his screenplay, The Young Woman.

 

Writer and Producer Sierchio’s writing credits include MGM’s Untamed Heart staring Marisa Tomei and Christian Slater. Tom recently made his directing debut on The Girl Who Invented Kissing, starring Suki Waterhouse, Luke Wilson, and Abbie Cornish that he also wrote. The film won seven awards at the New York City International Film Festival, including Best Feature Film and Best Director.

 

Producer Large’s credits include Cosmic Sin, starring Bruce Willis and Frank Grillo; Marauders, starring Bruce Willis, Dave Bautista, and Adrian Grenier; Cannes Film Festival Critics Week Grand Prize nominee It Follows; and box office hit The November Man starring Pierce Brosnan.
