Arriving by way of Pantelion Films, Begne has assembled an all-star cast for the action flick, placing Chaparro in the role of former Mexican cop, Garza. Framed for a crime he didn’t commit, Garza’s only hope of rescuing his significant other – and clearly his name in the process – is to partner with Vic, a tech whizz-kid with the hacking ability to help his new partner track down an old nemesis named Santos. Before he tracks them down, that is.
Joining Chaparro and Morgan for the actioner are Eric Roberts, Kevin Pollak, Erick Elías, Aislinn Derbez, Camila Sodi, Héctor Jiménez, Mauricio Barrientos and José Sefami.
Lock and load! Pantelion Films will roll out Compadres via limited release on April 22, and you can get acquainted with the film’s leading players in our exclusive gallery of images, above.
After being released from prison, former Mexican cop Garza (Chaparro) seeks revenge on Santos. Santos has kidnapped Garza’s girlfriend and framed him for a crime he didn’t commit. In his crusade for vengeance, Garza also tracks down an accountant responsible for stealing $10 million dollars from Santos. He is shocked to find that the infamous accountant is a 17 year old American computer hacker named Vic (Morgan). Despite an immediate disdain for each other, these two divided by culture, language and age, realize that Garza’s low tech brain and Vic’s high tech hacker skills may be their only chance at finding Santos before he finds them.
