Oscar nominee Mickey Rourke will star in indie action-thriller St. Vincent, directed by Walter Hill for Occpuant Films and Secret Handshake Entertainment. Production is slated to begin later this year.
St. Vincent, written by Cameron Young, centers on a hit man returning to his former New York City neighborhood to finish off the botched killing of an informant. He’s then forced to masquerade as a priest and finds himself taking the confessions of his target.
Rourke and Hill worked together on 1989’s Johnny Handsome.
