The trailer for Die in a Gunfight has a Romeo and Juliet meets Quentin Tarantino and/or Guy Ritchie vibe, with Diego Boneta as Romeo to Alexandra Daddario’s Juliet. The two-minute trailer finds the adult children of warring families falling in love and willing to be the target of hired assassins if that’s what it takes to be together.
In addition to Diego Boneta (Terminator: Dark Fate) and Alexandra Daddario (Why Women Kill), the cast includes Justin Chatwin (Shameless), Wade Allain-Marcus (Snowfall), Billy Crudup (The Morning Show), Emmanuelle Chriqui (Superman and Lois), and Travis Fimmel (Vikings). Collin Schiffli directed from a screenplay by Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari.

The Plot, Courtesy of Lionsgate:
In Die in a Gunfight, Mary (Daddario) and Ben (Boneta) are the star-crossed black sheep of two powerful families engaged in a centuries-long feud – and they’re about to reignite an affair after many years apart. Their forbidden love will trigger the dominoes that will draw in Mukul (Allain-Marcus), Ben’s best friend, who owes him a life debt; Terrence (Chatwin), Mary’s would-be protector-turned-stalker; Wayne (Fimmel), an Aussie hitman with an open mind and a code of ethics; and his free-spirited girlfriend, Barbie (Chriqui).
As fists and bullets fly, it becomes clear that violent delights will have violent ends.
