While many have used the pandemic as a way to shoot new projects remotely, some are filming in safety bubbles and Deadline has brought word that Frank Grillo (Kingdom), Josh Hartnett (Die Hart) and Melissa Leo (The Equalizer) are leading a new crime thriller Ida Red, shot in Oklahoma “closely following Oklahoma and SAG-AFTRA health and safety COVID-19 protocols.”

Written and directed by John Swab (Body Brokers), Ida Red centers on its titular career criminal (Leo) as she battles terminal illness during her 25-year prison sentence in Oklahoma and mentoring her son, Wyatt (Hartnett), to sustain the family business with his uncle Dallas (Grillo). After a job gone wrong, Wyatt’s brother-in-law and local detective Bodie Collier partners with FBI agent Lawrence Twilley to track down those responsible.

Alongside Grillo, Leo and Hartnett, the cast for the film includes William Forsythe (The Rock), Sofia Hublitz (Ozark), Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood0, Mark Boone Junior (Sons of Anarchy), Beau Knapp (The Nice Guys), Slaine (The Town) and Nicholas Cirillo (Outer Banks).

The movie, which is wrapping production in and around Tulsa, is produced by Jeremy M. Rosen (Charlie Says) alongside Swab and Robert Ogden Barnum (Margin Call) for Roxwell Films, while Luke Taylor, Matthew Helderman, Viviana Zarragoitia, Ali Jazayeri, Howard Scott and Joelle Scott are attached as executive producers.

Undeterred by the pandemic, this is our third consecutive summer shoot here in Tulsa,” Rosen said in a statement. “We could not make these films the way that we want to make them anywhere else. The local production value, support, and incentives make all of the difference.
