Director Ben Hernandez Bray and writer/producer Joe Carnahan had trouble securing financing for the film in Hollywood due to the script featuring an all-Latino cast.
In a May 2019 interview with the New York Times, Joe Carnahan recalled how one Hollywood executive told him the film needed a "Caucasian influence".
The filmmakers were eventually able to find investors in Canada, and a large portion of the film was produced in Calgary with a budget of $7 million. See more »

I didn't know what to expect, walking into this film but I was blown away by what I saw. The acting, action and story are first rate. I saw this at the film festival in Calgary and didn't have any knowledge of it beyond the fact it was shot locally. The movie really works on every level and I especially loved the score. I'm hoping this gets a decent release because it should be seen in a movie theater like I saw it.
