XLrator Media Takes on Savage Dog

Here’s some rather good news from AFM; apparently Bleiberg Entertainment has virtually sold out worldwide rights to the Scott Adkins action thriller Savage Dog led by a US deal with XLrator Media. Screen Daily states: “The LA-based production and sales company has licensed Germany to Spirit/Koch Media, Latin America to California Filmes, Canada to VVS Films, the Middle East to Eagle Films and Turkey to Sinema, among others.

Only China and Hong Kong remain available on Savage Dog, which recently wrapped production and centres on a disgraced soldier-turned-prizefighter seeking vengeance in a lawless town in 1950s Indochina.

 

Joining Adkins on the cast are Marko Zaror, Cung Le and Juju Chan. Jesse V. Johnson directs from his own original screenplay.

Ehud Bleiberg, who produced Adkins’ Close Range, produced alongside Johnson and Charles Arthur Berg, while Adkins and Bleiberg’s Nicholas Donnermeyer are executive producers with Blacklist Digital’s Tims Johnson, Narbeh Tatoussian and Jon Lee Brody.”

I can’t wait to get a trailer for this movie; hopefully we’ll get a glimpse soon and expect a release date for 2017.

International Trailer for The Commuter

This is actually a better trailer than the first one… right up until the crappy CG finale which looks like the climax of the film too. So now we don’t need to bother watching it when it comes out. Plot: In the midst...
