The AMBI Media Group has announced recently that they are developing a new revenge thriller titled Bent. The film will star Karl Urban for the lead role of a disgraced narc and ex-con who sets out to find the person who framed him and killed his partner only to discover greater stakes and treachery unfolding around him. Filming begins soon in Rome, Italy.
Sofia Vergara will also appear as a seductive government agent with Andy Garcia playing a retired cop and mentor to Urban’s role. AMBI’s Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi are producing with Deadly Codes Productions whose Joseph O’Donnell created the characters in the script written by Crash producer Bobby Moresco who will direct.
“Bent delivers on the best of film noirs – a main character driven by revenge, who is forced to choose between the truth he knows, the evidence against that truth, and the woman he loves most in the world,” Iervolino said.
“Karl, Sofia and Andy are a powerful onscreen trio who have a rich story to work with, thanks to the brilliant story and characters created by Bobby and Joseph.”
Urban is next set to appear in director Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok.
