At first glance, Pig looks a lot calmer than the John Wick films. Occasionally, however, thriller elements flash up in the trailer. The film seems to be a single powder keg just waiting to finally be released to go up in the air. In this respect, Pig could line up wonderfully behind Mandy in Nicolas Cage’s filmography.
The film was directed by Michael Sarnoski, who also wrote the script. Sarnoski has worked as a director, screenwriter, editor, producer and actor on various short films and series projects. Pig could be his big breakthrough to mark. After the trailer, he will definitely get his attention.
Pig starts in the USA on July 16, 2021 in theaters. When and how the film will come to Germany has not yet been determined.
