‘Thug’ Acquired By Tucker Tooley For ‘Den Of Thieves’ Christian Gudegast To Direct

Exclusive: Tucker Tooley Entertainment has picked up the crime drama film spec script Thug for Den of Thieves writer/director Christian Gudegast to helm. The project was penned by Tony Gayton. Tucker Tooley, CEO of Tooley Entertainment, will produce.

Gudegast, co-screenwriter for London Has Fallen which grossed $205.9M globally, made his directorial debut on Den of Thieves which Tooley also produced. The relationship between Gudegast and Tooley is very strong as the writer/director is also scripting the sequel to Den of Thieves.

Thug follows an ex-journeyman boxer and aging enforcer for a San Pedro Gangster who attempts to get back into the lives of his estranged children and clean up the messes of his past while coming to terms with the ruined landscape of his twenty-year career in crime all the while as the criminal underworld won’t loosen their hold on him.
