Penned by The Brothers Lynch and Jonathan Frank, Final Score takes place at a major sporting event, during which the stadium is seized by a group of heavily armed criminals demanding ransom. An ex-soldier must use all his military skills to save the 35,000 capacity crowd, one of which is the daughter of his fallen comrade.
“Final Score may be set in London but truly it’s a story that’s relatable the world over,” said The Fyzz Facility’s Robert Jones. “Scott Mann’s vision has scale, white knuckle tension, humor and heart. We’re thrilled that the concept and screenplay has attracted such an exciting cast in Dave Bautista, Pierce Brosnan and Julian Cheung, and firmly believe that this will be a standout in 2017’s movie release calendar.”
The main shooting location for Final Score will be at the world renowned Upton Park Stadium a famous London landmark that has been the home of Premier League soccer club West Ham United for over 100 years. West Ham United will be relocating to Olympic Stadium in East London next season. The venue will be handed over to a British property developer following production.
