While we are waiting for his return in the skin of the immortal cop John McClane in the upcoming announced new Die Hard sequel, that will be directed by Len Wiseman, who already was behind the cameras in Live Free or Die Hard (2007), Bruce Willis keeps on delivering his yearly amount of intense action thrillers. If the last 2 ones were quite disappointing, the science-fiction-oriented Cosmic Sin (2021) and Breach (2020), his newest film promises to be an exciting one.
Midnight in the Switchgrass (2021) is based on the true story of Texas’ most dangerous serial killer. FBI agent Karl Helter and his partner Rebecca Lombardi are very close to busting a sex-trafficking ring. When they realize their investigation has crossed the path of a brutal serial killer, they team up with Texas Ranger Byron Crawford who has years on this case. When Rebecca herself is abducted by their target and her life hangs in the balance, Karl and Byron have a precious few hours to piece together the last clues and put an end to the infamous ‘Truck Stop Killer‘.
This is the debut feature film as a director of Randall Emmett, a producer with extensive experience having worked in over a hundred titles including Narc (2002), The Amityville Horror (2005), 16 Blocks (2006), 88 Minutes (2007), Rambo (2008), Day of the Dead (2008), The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call – New Orleans (2009), End of Watch (2012), 2 Guns (2013), Escape Plan (2013), and Boss Level (2021), just to name a few. Alan Horsnail debuts as the writer.
Together with Bruce Willis, the cast for Midnight in the Switchgrass (2021) is formed by Megan Fox, Emile Hirsch, Machine Gun Kelly, Michael Beach, Lukas Haas, Jackie Cruz, Caitlin Carmichael, Sistine Rose Stallone, Tyler Jon Olson, and Welker White.
The movie is Rated R for violence, and language throughout, and will be released on July 23, 2021, by Lionsgate. Here you can watch the official trailer for Midnight in the Switchgrass (2021). Be careful, it contains lots of spoilers. I don’t know why they would expose so many plot surprises in a thriller movie where suspense is the key, but here it is.
