GRINGO, a dark comedy mixed with white-knuckle action and dramatic intrigue, explores the battle of survival for businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo) when he finds himself crossing the line from law-abiding citizen to wanted criminal.
In the early 1990s, Sylvester Stallone was attached to star in a similar project to this film, called "Gale Force," about an ex-Navy SEAL who defends a seacoast town from a gang of modern pirates during a hurricane. David Chappe had written the script and Renny Harlin was going to direct. Carolco Pictures had a $40 million budget for the film, but creative disagreements over the script and concerns about cost forced Carolco to scrap the film and make Cliffhanger (1993) instead. Also in 1995 Stallone was involved to star in another similar film titled "No Safe Haven", written by Drew Yanno and Anthony Borghi, in which he would play a Marine who has to fight against militia-like cult who take over Martha's Vineyard and take president's family as hostages during large hurricane, and only help he has is the president who managed to escape from cult members while they were taking over the island. But "No Safe Haven" was also cancelled very early in production. See more »
