Goggins will play Skinnyman, the eccentric, sharp-shooting hitman who works at a toy store.

The movie is written and directed by the Nelms Brothers (Small Town Crime), Eshom and Ian Nelms. Rough House Pictures is producing along with Todd Courtney of Mammoth Entertainment with Mammoth now set to finance. Rough House’s Brandon James, Fortitude’s Nadine de Barros, Skywolf’s Lisa Wolofsky, Michelle Lang, and Robert Menzies are also producing.
