By Slider

Killing Season, starring Robert De Niro and John Travolta, was released in 2013. Produced by Millennium Films, the movie is based off the period thriller script Shrapnel by Evan Daugherty, which won the 2008 Script Pipeline Screenwriting Competition. The project was later re-written with a contemporary backdrop and modified plot.
