Directed by James C. Clayton in his directorial debut, the action-packed film Bullet Proof will be released in the U.S. and Canada this summer, via Grindstone Entertainment Group, a Lionsgate company. IndustryWorks Studios will present the film to the foreign market this year at the world-renowned Marche du Film in Cannes, France.
Bullet Proof stars tough guy Vinnie Jones (Snatch, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) as the ruthless drug lord Temple.
The talented ensemble cast features breakout performances from Lina Lecompte (“Charmed,” and Monster High), Janvier Katabarwa (‘Deadpool 2, Cold Pursuit) as the deadly character The Frenchman, and a lead performance by James C. Clayton as a cantankerous criminal mind who finds himself with a big bag of money and surprisingly with extra deliverable goods. The film also stars Janvier Katabarwa, Danny Mac, and Philip Granger.
In Bullet Proof, a thief who only looks out for number one pulls off the robbery of a lifetime when he robs the psychotic drug lord Temple. The plan goes off without a hitch until the thief discovers a stowaway in his getaway car: Temple’s wife, Mia. With Temple and his top hitman, the deadly and mysterious hitman The Frenchman, in hot pursuit, and torn between making a quick getaway or taking a risky detour to help Mia escape her husband’s abusive grasp, the thief finds the only way to get out alive is to drive.
James C. Clayton, who directs and stars in the movie, said, “With Bullet Proof, I wanted to deliver a relentless, thrilling joy ride. And I could not have been more excited than to work with the great Vinnie Jones, who makes Temple even more terrifying than I’d imagined on the page. It’s so great to know that Grindstone will be bringing this movie to action audiences across the country this summer.”
