The film will revolve around Gibson's character, a straight arrow homicide detective named Thomas Craven. When his daughter is murdered on the front steps of his home, he believes the hit was meant for him. Craven's investigation leads a path to his daughter's secret life, a corporate cover-up, and the government's own shading dealings. DeNiro is set to play an operative sent in to clean up the mess.
The film begins shooting this month in Massachusetts.
