Mel Gibson is back in all his high-octane action glory in a brand new movie set in the backdrop of an ongoing natural disaster. 'Force of Nature' tells the story of a man going up against a bunch of deadly criminals, all while a storm threatens to kill them all. Here's everything you need to know about the project:

Release Date

'Force of Nature' will have a  Video On Demand release on June 30.


'Force of Nature' focuses on a police officer who has the unenviable task of protecting the remaining residents of a building while a hurricane evacuation is in effect. To make matters worse, violent criminals are attempting to pull off a mysterious heist within the building.


Somewhere in the building is a fortune and the robbers are hellbent on getting at it, with only one angry retired cop, two young officers, and a Category 5 hurricane standing in their way.  It's an escalation of Murphy's Law and there's no telling what will cause more damage, the criminals, the natural disaster, or the stubborn residents who refuse to flee in the face of insurmountable danger.

Other cast members in the movie include Kate Bosworth, Emile Hirsch, Stephanie Cayo, David Zayas, Jasper Polish, William Catlett, Swen Temmel and Tyler Jon Olson.
