Actor, former Mr. Universe and film multihyphenate Alexander Nevsky (HFPA, Russia) is finally on deck to bring Hollywood Storm-produced action comedy Maximum Impact to theaters. Unified Pictures has officially acquired North American rights to the film joining Nevsky with screenwriter Ross LaManna (Rush Hour) and director Andrzej Bartkowiak (Romeo Must Die).
When the granddaughter of the US Secretary of the State is kidnapped in Moscow, an agent of the Federal Security Service of Russia (Alexander Nevsky) and the US Secret Service are forced to pull aside their differences and work together to prevent a full-scale international crisis.
The news comes in the wake of updates highlighting Nevsky’s next reception to be had at the 14th Action On Film Festival where Nevsky will screen the film upon claiming its 2018 Breakout Action Star Award. Maximum Impact then opens from Unified Pictures in select theaters on September 28 prior to On Demand, DVD, Blu-ray and Digital releases on October 2, 2018.
Nevsky is joined by Kelly Hu (The Scorpion King), William Baldwin (The Purge: TV series), Tom Arnold (True Lies), Mark Dacascos (John Wick 3: Parabellum) and Danny Trejo (Machete).
SVP Acquisitions and Development Steve Break negotiated the deal on behalf of Unified Pictures along with Nevsky on behalf of the filmmakers.
