Fabrice Du Welz Brandishes A COLT 45

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Belgium's reigning enfant terrible, Fabrice du Welz burst on to the international scene in 2004 with Calvaire (The Ordeal), a punishing horror picture he followed in 2008 with Vinyan. There have been false starts on projects since then but du Welz is now in post on picture number three, a dark action-thriller titled simply Colt 45.

Weapon supervisor and shooting instructor for National Police, Vincent Milès is an expert in combat shooting. He's only 25 and the elites from all around the globe are courting him. Against all odds, he refuses to join the prestigious field squads. His life takes a crucial turn when he meets Milo Cardena, a mysterious field agent, who drags him into an infernal swirl of violence. Vincent will soon find himself in the middle of a series of heists, murders and relentless police internal war opposing his godfather to his mentor. Trapped in hell, Vincent will have to kill for his own survival...
The first poster art for the film is now available, click the image in the gallery below for a larger version.

    Gérard Lanvin is seriously underexposed and underrated. In France, he is actually a more reliable draw than flashier and more international names like Vincent Cassel, Jean Dujardin or Gérard Depardieu, but he won't work outside of his country. Too bad, his kind of class and serious acting chops would really go over well anywhere.

    Great news following the _Cub_ piece from the other day! Fully agree with rustdog about _Vinyan_ and the aerial shot he mentioned. Amazing stuff.

    From the synopsis this should be a change of pace for Fabrice while retaining the dark undercurrent of his past films.

    underrated director. I'm happy he's back. Vinyan is a beautifully shot film. There is a scene where the camera drops through a tree house like structure then follows the lead without missing a beat that is stunning.
