Walter Hill Returns to Features with St. Vincent

Walter Hill is one of Hollywood's most neglected master action directors, mostly because he has directed more classics (48 Hours, The Long Riders, The Warriors, Broken Trail) than commercial hits. So it's good news that his indie-financed St. Vincent appears to be moving forward, with a July 12 start of production in Detroit. The crime thriller written by Cameron Young stars Pierce Brosnan as a hitman who disguises himself as a priest to kill a gangland traitor (Billy Bob Thornton). Giovanni Ribisi and Maria Bello also star. Financed by Premier National Studios and Quickfire Films and produced by Claudio Castravelli, Irish Dreamtime’s Beau St. Claire and Jon Turtle, the film is being sold by IM Global at Cannes.
