Football star Rob Gronkowski joins Gibson and Grillo in Boss Level
The Tracking Board has confirmed that New England Patriots tight end and two-time Super Bowl champ Rob Gronkowski is joining Mel Gibson (Daddy’s Home 2), Frank Grillo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), Annabelle Wallis (The Mummy), Naomi Watts (Mulholland Drive, King Kong) and Will Sasso (The Three Stooges) in the action-thriller Boss Level. His role is currently unknown. Gronkowski previously appeared in the Entourage movie and Dito Montiel’s The Clapper.
Boss Level follows a retired special forces officer, Roy Pulver (Grillo), who is trapped in a never-ending time loop on the day of his death. Wallis will play Alice, a dental hygienist who hates teeth but has a huge crush on her patient, aka Roy. Since Roy has to repeat this particular day numerous times until he can figure out who is responsible and put an end to the loop, Alice is frequently part of the repeating narrative, sometimes in bed alongside Roy as the first assassin of the day that tries to murder him, as well as in other encounters with him.
Boss Level will be produced and financed by Randall Emmett and George Furla of Emmett/Furla/Oasis, with Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian also serving as producers. Carnahan and Grillo’s War Party will executive produce alongside Scott Free’s Jules Daly. The film was written and will be directed by Joe Carnahan (Death Wish).
