If you missed the thrilling action-packed story of “God Is a Bullet” in theaters this summer, worry not! The intense narrative is now getting a fresh adaptation in the form of a gripping comic book, available exclusively at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Directed by Nick Cassavetes, this project delves into a violent plot, where characters are forced to endure harrowing trials in pursuit of long-awaited emotional closure. Exploring themes of cults, death, and resilience, this action-packed story promises an immersive experience.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau takes on the role of Bob Hightower, a determined detective whose ex-wife is murdered and teenage daughter abducted by a controversial satanic cult. Bob devises a daring plan to rescue his family: infiltrate the very organization seeking to end their lives. Teaming up with the resourceful Case Hardin, portrayed by Maika Monroe, Bob embarks on a perilous mission to bring his plan to fruition. Case Hardin, having miraculously escaped the cult’s clutches, proves to be the ideal ally for the job.
Adding to the excitement, Jamie Foxx joins the cast, portraying a character known simply as “The Ferryman.” While many films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or DCU are inspired by comic books with an array of characters, “God Is a Bullet” takes a different approach, translating a story that first captivated audiences on the big screen into the comic book format. Copies of the adaptation will be available for purchase at San Diego Comic-Con, but quantities are limited, making it an exclusive collector’s item.
During a recent interview with FilmSweep’s Maggie Lovitt, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau opened up about the film’s challenging themes, revealing how it impacted the cast emotionally. He shared, “It was a challenge. You always talk about movies and how they affect you, and I think this one, for a number of reasons, took its toll. I think it took a toll on all of us. We were isolated, and as you can imagine, every day the scenes were brutal and extreme, emotionally. You’re kind of facing the darkest aspects of humankind, in a way. And then what Nick was so good at was saying, ‘Listen, at the core of this, it’s about finding hope when there’s no hope and insisting on connecting with people,’ and also, even that whole basic thing about not judging a book by its cover.”
