Leo From Toledo has cast Mel Gibson and Frank Grillo. 

According to Deadline the two have been cast as the leads in the film about a former killer for the Kansas City mob, now hiding in witness protection, who has trouble with his memory. 

“What he does remember he wants to forget. But what he has forgotten has now made him a hunted man with precious little time to save the one thing he has left: his estranged daughter and granddaughter,” reads the official logline.

Directing the thriller is Joe Carnahan who said, “Leo is the kind of movie I love to make, it’s funny and heartfelt with a ton of great action. Being able to work with Mel, and Frank again is a real gift. It rarely happens that you get to make films with the people you love and respect, so I consider myself blessed. I feel like Leo is a ‘return to form’ of sorts for Mel. The script allows him to be both funny and dramatic at different turns and I can’t wait to see what he does with that character.”

Carnahan will direct from a script from Dan Casey.
