Australian superstar Luke Bracey (Warner Bros.’ Point Break, Academy Award winner Hacksaw Ridge) and Brittany Snow (Pitch Perfect franchise, Hairspray) are set to star in the new feature film thriller Big Nickel.

In this gritty thriller, Charlie (Bracey), a charismatic Army recruiter, is tasked with signing the "big fish" for a promotion. The only thing that stands in his way is a disturbed ex-vet, Erik, that Charlie convinced to enlist years before.

To say Jason and I are excited for an audience to join us on this thrill ride is a vast understatement,” said Kristofek.
