The Marksman – Jacob Perez

Not very many young children get to star alongside megastars like Liam Neeson. Jacob Perez had that opportunity to be in The Marksman with Neeson. Not only it’s a rare opportunity, but The Marksman also marked his feature film acting debut.

Not a bad start for the young career of Jacob Perez.

The film also stars Katheryn Winnick, Juan Pablo Raba, and Jacob Perez. Robert Lorenz (Trouble with the Curve) directed the movie from a script written by Chris Charles, Danny Kravitz, and Lorenz.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Ex-Marine and hardened Arizona rancher Jim Hanson (Neeson) simply wants to be left alone as he tries to make a living on an isolated stretch of borderland. But everything changes when he witnesses 11-year-old migrant Miguel (Perez) and his mother fleeing from a band of assassins sent by a ruthless drug cartel. After being caught in a shoot-out, Miguel’s mother begs Jim to take her son to the safety of their family in Chicago. Defying law enforcement, Jim and Miguel hit the road and slowly begin to forge an unlikely friendship, while the cartel’s relentless assassins blaze a bloody trail, hot on their heels.
