The Machete Kills star is in talks about leading the film for director Jean-Francois Richet, according to Deadline.
Blood Father is said to be in the style of Liam Neeson's Taken and will follow an ex-con, the role earmarked for Mel, who reunites with his teenage daughter in a bid to protect her from drug dealers.
