ETA Films, Hollywood Storm and San Rafael Productions have officially greenlit a sequel to Joe Cornet’s upcoming Western, Assault On Rio Bravo, now aiming for a November start. The announcement over the weekend cites the film’s positive reception by distributors at this year’s Cannes Film Market.

Other recurring cast members will be Cornet, along with Matthias Hues (Dark Angel), Natalie Denise Sperl (Mank), and actress/supermodel Anna Oris among others.
Eric Brenner (Crazy Heart) will exec produce, with a score by Sean Murray (Call of Duty: Black Ops) will create a musical score, action and stunt sequences once again by Art Camacho (Half Past Dead), and Sam Wilkinson (Paydirt) returning again as Director of Photography.
