Los Angeles, CA –-Patriot Pictures and XYZ Films have brought on Wayward Entertainment to release GOD IS A BULLET, screenplay written and directed by critically-acclaimed director Nick Cassavetes, for a wide release exclusively in US theaters on June 23, 2023. The action thriller stars Maika Monroe, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Karl Glusman, January Jones, Paul Johansson, David Thornton and Jamie Foxx. The film will expand to a digital release in the US on July 11, 2023.  

Inspired by true events and based on the best-selling novel “God Is A Bullet” written by Boston Teran, the film is produced by Michael Mendelsohn from Patriot Pictures and Donald V. Allen. Kim H. Winther and Jim Steele are co-producing. Executive producing is Natalie Perrotta, Paul Johansson, Sidney Kimmel, Jamie Foxx, Chuck Pacheco, Jim Steele, Santiago García Galván. Mendelsohn’s Union Patriot Capital Management fully financed the film. 

The film follows detective Bob Hightower (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), who finds his ex-wife murdered and his daughter kidnapped by an insidious cult. Bob takes matters into his own hands and infiltrates the secretive cult to try to save his daughter. With the help of the cult’s only female victim escapee, Case Hardin (Maika Monroe), Bob and Case go down the rabbit hole with The Ferryman (Jamie Foxx) to save his daughter and find closure for Case from the cult – and its maniacal leader (Glusman) – that took so much away from her. 

Patriot Pictures Michael Mendelson states “We are looking forward to working with Wayward and are so excited that GOD IS A BULLET will be hitting theaters nationwide this summer. Audiences are back and want to see films that keep them on the edge. Nick and I, with an amazing, multi-national cast and crew, are excited to release a badass, action-packed revenge classic, made to be enjoyed on the big screen.” 

Nick Cassavetes added “I’ve been trying to tell this great story for the last 18+ years. It’s tough, violent, has two flawed and fantastic characters, and absolutely pulls no punches. I love it! There’s nothing else out there like it, not even close!” 

XYZ Films is handling global sales for the Patriot Pictures production. XYZ and Patriot previously collaborated on SYNCHONIC (TIFF 2019) starring Jamie Dornan and Anthony Mackie, CUT THROAT CITY (SXSW 2020) starring Ethan Hawke and Wesley Snipes and the Sundance world premiere (2021) entry PRISONERS OF THE GHOSTLAND starring Nicolas Cage.

  1. Might seem interesting despite Nick Cassavetes’ track record of good films and some bad films. The cast, minus January Jones and Paul Johansson (I don’t think they’re good actors), is promising as is the premise. I’ll wait for the reviews and such.

  2. Oh, HECK yes. Liking everything I’m reading here. I saw Synchonic and wasn’t real crazy about it. Would like to see the other ones you mention also.
