Dangerous is David Hackl‘s newest film. Starring Scott Eastwood and Kevin Durand.

The Synopsis 

DANGEROUS follows ex-con and reformed sociopath Dylan Forrester (Scott Eastwood, “Suicide Squad”), who is trying to quietly serve out his parole — with the help of a steady supply of antidepressants and his eccentric psychiatrist (Mel Gibson, “Braveheart”). But when his brother dies under mysterious circumstances, Dylan breaks parole and, with a dogged FBI agent (Famke Janssen, “X-Men:The Last Stand”) on his trail, goes to uncover the truth. A band of heavily armed mercenaries wants something Dylan’s brother was hiding, and Dylan will need all his guile and tactical skills to survive in this action-packed thriller co-starring Kevin Durand “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and Tyrese Gibson (“Baby Boy”).
