News About "Gringo"

Gringo is a Spanish word meaning "dirty foreigner".
This movie is directed by Nash Egerton, the brother of Joel Egerton who also stars in this film.
The script involves the controversial commercial production of marijuana, which is becoming a legal commodity in some parts of the America and the world.

From the Studio:
An exhilarating mix of dark comedy, white-knuckle action and dramatic intrigue, Gringo joyrides into Mexico, where mild-mannered businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo) finds himself at the mercy of his back-stabbing business colleagues back home, local drug lords and a morally conflicted black-ops mercenary. Crossing the line from law-abiding citizen to wanted criminal, Harold battles to survive his increasingly dangerous situation in ways that raise the question: Is he out of his depth - or two steps ahead?
