Conservative actors Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn are set to star in a police thriller titled "Dragged Across Concrete,” Variety reported.

The pair will portray cops who get suspended after a video of their "strong-arm tactics" gets "wide attention," Variety said, adding that they subsequently "descend into the criminal underworld to exact vengeance."

Gibson recently directed the Academy Award-nominated "Hacksaw Ridge" in which Vaughn played a sergeant.

"Dragged Across Concrete" will be directed by “Bone Tomahawk” filmmaker S. Craig Zahler, the entertainment paper reported, adding that he said the movie's "protagonists are in perilous circumstances against which they struggle in different and surprising — though logical — ways."

Gibson's conservative views are well known, and his 2004 blockbuster "The Passion of the Christ" was a hit with churchgoing audiences. His professional and personal life unraveled several years later, although Gibson appears to be on the way back these days.

Vaughn's politics have commanded less attention, but he has acknowledged in the recent past that he counts himself as a conservative.

Here are Gibson and Vaughn speaking at the Disabled American Veterans' 95th National Convention last August:
