This is an interesting direction Scott Adkins is headed to, an historic gangster movie. He’s due to appear in ‘The Returner’ for a movie with a difference it seems.
According to Deadline;
Scott Adkins has pounced on the lead in The Returner, a period indie actioner from Boundless Pictures. He’ll star as John Piper, the owner of a speakeasy who refuses to sell Al Capone’s booze during Prohibition and pays the ultimate price. After Piper and his family are murdered, he mysteriously returns from the grave; a revenant, he has nine lives to exact vengeance — and possibly rewrite history.
William Kaufman will direct The Returner from a script by Chad Law, who is also on as a producer. Adkins is also due to appear in ‘Criminal’ alongside Kevin Costner.
