But here, though Avengers director Joe Russo has written the screenplay, and Russo Brothers have produced the film.
Joe has adapted the screenplay from Ande Parks’ book Ciudad, which translates to ‘city’ in English.
Chris Hemsworth is a black market mercenary, hunted by the past was hired to rescue the kidnapped young son of an imprisoned international crime boss and returning him to safety.
Grabbing the kid is the easier part, but getting him out of the city is quite another task as Rake’s nemesis, Saju (Randeep Hooda), has his own reasons for nabbing the kid. And there’s also the real villain of the piece, Amir Asif (Priyanshu Painyuli), a murderous gang lord and kidnapper who is lethally evil.
