Jason Patric to Star in Upcoming Immigrant Drama BONDED

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jason Patric is set to star in the immigrant drama Bonded from writer-director Mohit Ramchandani.

The film follows a young Mexican teenager who is enslaved, beaten and forced to work in the squalor of a sweatshop with other illegal immigrants after being brought to the U.S. as part of a premier soccer camp. Patric (Sleepers, The Lost Boys) will play Officer Stevens, a police officer weathered by his own adversity and self-loathing and who doesn't always play by the rules.

Bonded is based on true events around Los Angeles sweatshops. Lucas Akoskin and Luke Daniels are producing.

Patric is known for his roles in the films The Lost Boys, Rush, Sleepers, Geronimo: An American Legend, Your Friends & Neighbors, Narc, The Losers, The Alamo, and Speed 2: Cruise Control. He next appeared on Broadway opposite Brian Cox, Chris Noth, Kiefer Sutherland and Jim Gaffigan in a revival of his father Jason Miller's play, That Championship Season, which began previews on February 9, 2011 and closed on May 29, 2011. The play (written by Jason Miller) debuted in 1972, and won, among other awards, the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award. In 2012, he began filming the Civil War film, Copperhead, but several weeks into the shoot, he was removed from the project by the director, Ronald F. Maxwellfor "failing to take direction". His replacement was Billy Campbell.
