Neal McDonough reprises his role as mercenary Nick Boon in the Red Stone sequel, which will be released in theaters and on VOD in April.
The official trailer for Boon, the sequel to last year’s action-thriller Red Stone, has been released by Cinedigm. The sequel, which reintroduces Neal McDonough in the lead role, also reintroduces Derek Presley as director, with the two picking up where they left off to expand Nick Boon’s story. The film will be released in theaters, digitally, and on VOD on April 1, and you can watch the new trailer here.
Boon stars veteran actor Neal McDonough, Tommy Flanagan (Braveheart, Sons of Anarchy), Christiane Seidel (The Queen’s Gambit, Godless), Jason Scott Lee (Mulan, Hawaii Five-0), Demetrius Grosse (Rampage, Fear the Walking Dead), Christina Ochoa (Animal Kingdom, A Million Little Things), Gabrielle Carteris (Code Black, Beverly Hills, 90210), Jake Melrose (Disney’s Secret of Sulphur Springs), James Madio (Band of Brothers), and singer-songwriter Pat Monahan of Train.
The official synopsis reads: “Mercenary Nick Boon (McDonough) is trying to atone for his life as an enforcer for a ruthless syndicate. Running from his past, Boon moves to a remote area in the pacific northwest where he meets a struggling widow (Seidel) and her son. When he finds the pair living in fear of a criminal kingpin (Flanagan), Boon realizes the only way to protect them is to do what he does best: Kill.”
Derek Presley directed the film, and he and McDonough co-wrote the screenplay. McDonough also collaborated on the film’s production with Jason Starne, Stephen Endelman, and Ruve McDonough.
Red Stone, which was released in December, introduced Neal McDonough as the dangerous hitman he’ll be revisiting in Boon. The film was written and directed by Derek Presley, and it starred Michael Cudlitz, Mike Dopud, Dominic Scott Kay, Dash Melrose, and Alexandria DeBerry. Bringing back the same mind behind the original, along with McDonough, who has become more creatively involved with Boon, was an easy sell for Cinedigm.
