Voltage Pictures and Wonderland team for GUARDIAN

Emmy-winning Shauna Duggins has signed on to direct the gritty action drama, Guardian, written by Cory Byam (“The Temp Agency”), it was announced today by Voltage Pictures CEO and Academy Award winning producer Nicolas Chartier (The Hurt Locker).

 

The Voltage Pictures and Wonderland Sound & Vision production is produced by McG and Mary Viola alongside Voltage’s Chartier and Dominic Rustam. Steven Bello of Wonderland and Jonathan Deckter of Voltage are also executive producers of the project, alongside Duggin’s long-time collaborator Brian Machleit, who will take an active role on set.
 
In the vein of The Professional and Man on FireGuardian tells the multi-layered story of a top assassin who becomes the reluctant guardian for the son of the last man he killed – entangling himself in a mob power struggle and an unexpected crisis of conscience.
 
One of the top stunt coordinators in the world, Shauna Duggins became the first female stunt professional to win an Emmy in 2018 for her work on Netflix’s “GLOW”. Additional credits include HBO’s juggernaut series “Game of Thrones”, Showtime’s “Ray Donovan” starring Liev Schreiber, ABC’s “Alias” starring Jennifer Garner, the fifth installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise Fast Five starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson and Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill: Vol. 2 starring Uma Thurman. Duggins first collaborated with Wonderland on the box office hit Charlie’s Angels starring Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu in 2000. Guardian will be her directorial debut.

Machleit brings a wealth of experience to any set, having served as stunt coordinator on several Academy Award-winning and box office successes such as The RevenantMad Max: Fury RoadAvatar, The Aviator, and Training Day.

 

“My partner Brian and I are excited to take our collaboration with McG to the next level on Guardian, a film that explores the unlikely bond between an assassin and the child he’s grudgingly sworn to protect through a journey jam packed with groundbreaking action and heart wrenching emotion,” said Duggins. “We couldn't be happier to be working with the prolific team of Voltage and Wonderland.”

 

“Shauna is an incredible artist who has been instrumental in giving some of film and television’s most popular female action heroes their kick-ass skills on screen,” said Chartier. “The time is right for her to move into the directing chair and we can think of no other filmmaker who has the action chops to deliver Guardian as the powerhouse, don’t forget to breathe rollercoaster. We’re thrilled to support her directorial debut alongside our friends at Wonderland, who share our commitment to working with female filmmakers at all stages along the production pipeline.”

 

“Shauna has a unique vision on both the story and the action for this film,” added McG. “We are delighted to be a part of her well-deserved ascension to the director chair.”

Voltage and Wonderland previously partnered on last year’s body positive romantic-comedy, I Feel Pretty, starring Amy Schumer which grossed $100m at the worldwide box office.
