ICYMI, there’s an action movie called Bushwick in the works. It was announced that Dave Bautista (of Guardians of the Galaxy fame) will be starring alongside Jane Levy (Suburgatory, Fun Size) in the upcoming thriller. The film is scheduled to go into production in New York this year.
According to Deadline, the film will follow Brooklynite Lucy (Levy) and war veteran Stupe (Bautista) as they meet during during a military invasion of Brooklyn (basically, the country is in war-mode as Texas tries to succeed. NYC is the negotiation. Get it?) Together, the two unlikely friends cross the treacherous five blocks of Bushwick — “littered with looters, local militias, the invading forces and one crazy cousin — in order to get home and be reunited with Lucy’s grandmother.”
Basically, don’t expect a Noah Baumbach-filtered view of Bushwick ripe with unattainable lofts and sidewalk beach parties. But Bushwick as a war zone? We’d pay to see that.
