Jean-Francois Richet’s Blood Father should be a blistering revenge thriller with Mel Gibson. It’s being pitched as a Taken-like actioner – but that’s only because people have short memories and they fail to remember that Gibson is the original Blood Father, the parent seeking to right the wrongs done to family members. Mad Max, Lethal Weapon, Braveheart, Ransom, The Patriot and Edge Of Darkness are prime revenge tales, anchored by intense Gibson performances.
Lets hope that Blood Father is a worthy addition to those ranks. This new image (of a muscular looking Gibson) comes courtesy of director Jean-Francois Richet and it has a strong Mad Max vibe to it.
Lionsgate will release Blood Father in 2015.
