The Untitled Nash Edgerton Project gets a title and release date

Last Updated on July 31, 2021

GRINGO is the official title of the UNTITLED NASH EDGERTON PROJECT! 

Directed by Nash Edgerton with a screenplay by Anthony Tambakis and Matthew Stone, GRINGO is a dark comedy with dramatic intrigue that features a joyride into Mexico, where all is not as it seems for mild-mannered American businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo). Crossing the line from citizen to criminal, Harold tangles with duplicitous business partners, Mexican drug lords, international mercenaries, and the DEA. As he attempts to survive in one of the most dangerous places on earth, the question lingers: is this ordinary man in way over his head, or is he two steps ahead?

Geez, I'm begining to wonder about how many joyrides ever actually go well for characters in film? It seems as if there's always some hitchhiker, serial-killer-like road-side-assistance agent, or grouping of dangerous individuals in pursuit of anyone whose desire it is to take a long trip down a deserted road. As someone who's driven through the lonely stretches of Arizona state, I can assure you that my ass is always packing a spare tire, a charged cell phone for emergencies, and a bangin' mix tape for the journey. Mild-mannered or not, I have a sneaking suspicion that Harold Soyinka is going to be spending quite a bit of time mulling over his poor life choices in the lonely nights to come. Joining Edgerton for GRINGO will be stars Joel Edgerton, Amanda Seyfried, Charlize Theron, Yul Vazquez, Thandie Newton, and Sharlto Copley

Amazon Studios and STX Films will release GRINGO domestically in theaters March 9, 2018
