Production: A Saban Films release and presentation in association with Carnaby International of a Salty Film production.
Charlie works with the dream of one day retiring to Ocean Views, a luxury housing complex with servants and utilities. Heavy on histrionics but light on on character development, Gun Shy is entertaining piffle. But since the plot requires that Neeson stay in this job, he does. Back on the job, Charlie is knee-deep in negotiations for high-stakes money laundering and stock manipulation. Executive producers: Rene Besson, Cassian Elwes, Hannah Leader, Andrew Loveday, Gia Muresan, Sean O'Kelly, Alex Thoukydides, Jeremy Wall, Ahsan Zaman. Rights to the film, which is the first Solstice Studios movie to go into production, will go on sale next week at the Cannes Film Festival. Unlike most good comedies the recent Meet the Parents comes to mind , Gun Shy just doesn't know how to handle it's characters.
Jason Cane Andrew Lauer , a young Wall street-type with a plan, but poor taste, completes the group. Fulvio is the disfavored son-in-law of high-ranking Italian mobster, Carmine Minetti. But, really, those random moments are not nearly enough to recommend this witless and graceless farce. It's not boring as much as it's. Camera color : Alan Caudillo.
At therapy, Charlie meets and befriends a group of stressed out men from the business world. Mostly, they're motivated by what the plot requires them to do, rather than what they would logically be doing. With: Antonio Banderas, Olga Kurylenko, Ben Cura, Mark Valley, Aisling Loftus, Jesse Johnson, Martin Dingle Wall, Emiliano Jofre. They are dealing with an intense man with an unpredictable temper named Fulvio Nesstra Oliver Platt who represents the Italian mob in New York. His requests to be taken off the case or retired are denied by his bosses, Lonny Ward Louis Giambalvo and Dexter Helvenshaw Mitch Pileggi as so much time was put into his cover.
Vaillar is a son of an important Colombian druglord and fears being viewed as a stereotype. Charlie's superior Mitch Pileggi has set him up on another undercover assignment as he tries to bring in two Colombian drug kingpins and a low-level Mafiosi with delusions of grandeur Oliver Platt. Would the logical thing not be to find a new line of work? Example: Liam Neeson hates his job, so much so that it's giving him stomach cramps. Sandra Bullock plays a nurse he meets during an enema yes, really. Comedy from forced situations is never as funny as comedy that comes out of a real place.
Blakeney has made his job look easy by shaping such a fine script. Bleckner listens to his troubles and prescribes him anti-anxiety medication to help him deal with stress. During his flight to New York, where his job will resume, another passenger strikes up a conversation with him. As Charlie makes his way through therapy, he's referred to a nurse Sandra Bullock interested in New Age healing techniques; now he has love on his mind as he tries to keep himself out of harm's way under increasingly dangerous circumstances. Good material certainly does a lot of the work.

Jeff Bleckner Michael Mantell , is a psychiatrist and upon arriving to New York, Charlie enlists his services. It helps even less that just when it seems the movie has mercifully drawn to a conclusion, it drags on for several more minutes of song, dance and broadly played tomfoolery during the unduly protracted closing credits. Each thinks he understands the other players, but there is more to these characters than meets the eye. Gun Shy marked the feature directorial debut of television veteran Eric Blakeney. Alas, that's not always the case. He also encourages him to join a group therapy session.

The accident left Charlie shaken, and he's gone into therapy to hold himself together as he struggles through one final case before retiring. Principal photography on the film is set to begin in the fall. During the aforementioned incident, his partner was killed and he found himself served up on a platter of watermelon with a gun shoved in his face just before back-up arrived. . .
