(Cincinnati, Oh.) - Film Cincinnati announced the start of production of a Netflix original film, called “Point Blank” starring Frank Grillo, Anthony Mackie, and Marcia Gay Harden.
Kristen Schlotman, executive director of Film Cincinnati says this is a remake of a French Film from 2010 “The screenplay was re-written to be set in Cincinnati because we are welcoming home Cincinnati native, Producer, Johanna Byer.”
“All of us who set out to make movies are dreamers, but coming home to Cincinnati to make Point Blank, now this is way beyond what I could have ever even imagined,” said Byer. “It really is just so great to be home.”“Point Blank” is produced by Johanna Byer, Joe Carnahan, and Frank Grillo and will begin shooting in Cincinnati on August 6th.
“Point Blank” tells the story of the unlikely pairing of Paul, an emergency room nurse, and Abe, a wrongly accused crime suspect, as they are pitted against gangsters and corrupt police in a deadly race through Cincinnati to save the lives of Paul’s kidnapped wife and unborn son.
