Ken Sanzel wrote and directed the film, which has just wrapped production in Colombia and will be on offer later this month at the American Film Market.

The film opens with a hotel room shootout between two assassins, kicking off a long night where bodies fall like dominoes as we follow a chain of crooked cops, gangsters, hitmen, a femme fatale and an ex-mercenary through a relay of murder, betrayal, and revenge.

Enrico Colantoni and Alimi Ballard co-star.

Acosta’s previous credits include HBO’s comedy series Ballers and ABC’s thriller series Quantico.

Acosta, who stars on the television series Ballers, was initially cast as a recurring in the role of Nathalie Vazquez and bumped up to regular ahead of the September 27 premiere.

A former cop from Laredo, Texas, Nathalie is driven, kick-ass, and fiercely competitive. She’s almost mercenary in her focus, more interested in always coming out on top than being a team player.

The ABC Studios-produced Quantico revolves around a diverse group of recruits at the FBI Quantico Base, one of whom is suspected of masterminding the biggest attack on New York City since 9/11.

Acosta also recurs on HBO’s Ballers.

From creator Stephen Levinson, Ballers takes a look at the lives of former and current football players, including former superstar Spencer Strasmore (Johnson), who is trying to reinvent himself as a financial manager for current players in sunsoaked Miami.

The cast also includes John David Washington, Omar Miller, Donovan W. Carter, Troy Garity, London Brown, Jazmyn Simon and Rob Corddry.

In the series, Acosta portrays the faithful girlfriend of the hotheaded and troubled—yet talented—wide receiver Ricky Jerret (Washington).

“My character’s man cheats on her. Lies to her a lot. She stays with him, but not in a weak way. She sees the good in him, but stands up for herself,” Acosta tells The New York Daily News.

Ballers debuted its 10-episode season Sunday, June 21 on HBO and currently debuts other episodes Sundays at 10 PM.

Levinson and Johnson also executive produce the series.
