Kevin Dillon is a bonafide action star. After the action films A Day to Die with Frank Grillo and Hot Seat with Mel Gibson, Dillon is reunited with action star legend Bruce Willis in Wire Room.
In this popcorn flick, Dillon is a retired Secret Serviceman who is regulated to an easy desk job of watching all the action unfolds on camera. Turns out the task is no easy feat either.
The film also stars Oliver Trevena (Red Sonya), Texas Battle (Hard Kill, Final Destination 3), Cameron Douglas, and Shelby Cobb (American Housewife). Matt Eskandari (12 Feet Deep, Hard Kill) directed the movie from the screenplay written by Brandon Stiefer.
Here is the full official synopsis:
Action legend Bruce Willis comes out with guns blazing as Shane Mueller, a Homeland Security agent who runs the Wire Room, a high-tech command center surveilling the most dangerous criminals. New recruit Justin Rosa (Kevin Dillon) must monitor arms-smuggling cartel member Eddie Flynn—and keep him alive at all costs. When a SWAT team descends on Flynn’s home, Rosa breaks protocol and contacts the gangster directly to save his life. As gunmen break into the Wire Room and chaos erupts, Mueller and Rosa make a final, desperate stand against the corrupt agents and officials who seek to destroy evidence and kill them both.
