Coming soon is the new espionage thriller, Rogue Agent, starring Anthony La Paglia (tv;s Without A Trace) and James Floyd. Here's the official synopsis:
"The film centers on Alex (James Floyd), the newest member of a special ops team working for the U.S. government. The rookie’s tireless determination earned him a spot on one of the most elite industrial espionage teams in the world, and his mentor Daniel Frost (Anthony LaPaglia) believes he is destined for greatness.
When his first mission goes disastrously and suspiciously wrong, Alex becomes the primary suspect of an international manhunt. Alex is forced to go on the run, and try to piece together the truth by recreating the events of the ill-fated mission… with only an audio recording to lead him.
With the mentor/mentee dynamic between LaPaglia and Floyd I can't help but be reminded of the CIA thriller The Recruit, which was perfectly watchable so I'd be happy if that is the case. Of interest to Flash-Bang is that the director, Kai Barry, wrote the screenplay to a great little horror called SPLINTER, so we're interested to see how he does here. The below trailer does enough to want me to see this, although as a trailer the first part could be edited better! The film is due out on DVD on July 25th and we'll be posting a review nearer the release date.
