Nick Cassavetes directs from a script he wrote inspired by actual events and based on the novel of the same name by Boston Teran. God Is a Bullet tells the following story:

When vice detective Bob Hightower (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) finds his ex-wife murdered and daughter kidnapped by a satanic cult, he is frustrated by bumbling botched official investigations. Bob quits the police force, gets tattoos, and infiltrates the cult to hunt down the charismatic cult leader, Cyrus, with the help of the cult’s only female victim escapee, the brilliantly damaged Case Hardin (Maika Monroe). Bob is led down the rabbit hole to save his daughter, and Case seizes the opportunity to reclaim her power from the cult that took so much away from her.

“We are looking forward to working with Wayward and are so excited that God Is A Bullet will be hitting theaters nationwide this summer. Audiences are back and want to see films that keep them on the edge. Nick and I, with an amazing, multi-national cast and crew, are excited to release a badass, action-packed revenge classic, made to be enjoyed on the big screen,” said Mendelson.

“I’ve been trying to tell this great story for the last 18+ years,” Cassavetes said about finally adapting the story. “It’s tough, violent, has two flawed and fantastic characters, and absolutely pulls no punches. I love it! There’s nothing else out there like it, not even close!”
