Vikings star Katheryn Winnick Juan Pablo Raba (Narcos) have joined the cast of The Minuteman, the action thriller starring Liam Neeson. The pic from Sculptor Media, being directed by Robert Lorenz, begins production next week in New Mexico and Ohio.
The pic follows a rancher (Neeson) on the Arizona border who becomes the unlikely defender of a young Mexican boy desperately fleeing the cartel assassins (led by Raba) who’ve pursued him into the U.S. The screenplay is from Chris Charles and Danny Kravitz, with Lorenz penning the latest draft.
