While they’re currently enjoying their mutual success in the Oscar-nominated war movie Hacksaw Ridge, Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn will be teaming up once again for an upcoming crime thriller concerning police brutality, titled Dragged Across Concrete.

Bone Tomahawk’s S Craig Zahler will direct the project, with Keith Kjarval of United Pictures and Assemble Media’s Jack Heller on joint production. The Hollywood Reporter, which broke the details of the film, says it will be introduced to buyers at the upcoming European Film Market in Berlin.

The plot will apparently concern two policemen – Gibson as an experienced officer with Vaughn as his younger partner – who are suspended from their jobs when video footage of their strong-arm tactics on suspects is leaked and made public. Seeking vengeance, they turn to the criminal underworld.

Dragged Across Concrete is best suited to my goal of making a heartfelt, surprising, sad, funny, shocking, and memorable world with multiple viewpoints,” Zahler said in a statement. “As is often the case in my novels and screenplays, the protagonists are in perilous circumstances against which they struggle in different and surprising - though logical - ways. I am absolutely thrilled to have Mel and Vince agree to play the lead roles.”

Vaughn played a sergeant in the Oscar-nominated Hacksaw Ridge, which was directed by 60 year old Gibson and received six nods from the Academy, including Best Picture and Best Director. With Andrew Garfield in the lead role, it’s been widely seen as Gibson’s rehabilitation to Hollywood.

46 year old Vaughn has also worked with director Zahler before, starring in his prison drama Brawl in Cell Block 99 alongside Jennifer Carpenter and Don Johnson.

Meanwhile, Gibson is also being tapped for a sequel of Daddy’s Home, this film that starred Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell in 2016. He and John Lithgow are rumoured to have been offered places in the cast, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
