From people who gave us Taken, Lucy and The Equalizer, and looking somewhat akin to Zero Dark Thirty meets Inglourious Basterds via The Expendables, Renegades is preparing to go for gold.
That would be a motherlode of French gold that the Nazis stole in World War II, which our squad believes is nestled snugly at the bottom of a lake in Sarajevo.
JK Simmons stars in wonderfully shouty army bigwig mode, alongside the likes of Aussie Sullivan Stapleton (Animal Kingdom), Charlie Bewley (The Twilight Saga movies), Joshua Henry (Winter’s Tale), Diarmaid Murtagh (Dracula Untold) and Dimitri Leonidas (The Monuments Men).
Renegades was penned by Luc Besson and Richard Wenk, the latter of whom has previously written everything from The Equalizer to The Expendables 2. This pedigree comes through in the explosive trailer.
Guess what? You can own it as of this week on DVD and Blu-ray.
