Actor and producer Bryan Larkin (Chasing The Dragon, Angel Has Fallen, Vengeance) is maintaining his stride this week stemming from director Carter Ferguson’s multi-award winning 2018 shortfilm hit, Dead End. With a sequel already in tow, the shortfilm series following the story of a hitman stopped short of his way out from a world of violence with an apprentice under his wing, is going full-service in trilogy fashion as of this Spring, releasing in whole later this year.
For Dead End III, Larkin is reteaming with Vengeance (a.k.a. I Am Vengeance) helmer Ross Boyask who will direct the third installment, with filming set for London and Munich between March and April. Larkin reunites with actor Julian Gaertner for the back-to-back series, and with a cast that also lists Greg Burridge pictured (London Rampage, upcoming Avengement and Vengeance 2) Rebecca Yeo (Strangers, Stan & Ollie), Fenfen Huang (Operation Red Sea) Leander Vyvey (Flack) and Tony Greengrass.
Ross said “I’m delighted and thrilled to be working with Bryan Larkin again after such a rewarding experience on I Am Vengeance.”
Boyask will also be joined by Simon Rowling, serving as director of photography as he did on the Vengeance films. Hybrid Film and Black Camel Pictures will exec produce with Derek Newlands.
Boyask, whose credits include (but aren’t limited to) Left For Dead (2005), Ten Dead Men (2008), and Cecily Fay’s Warrioress (2015) is in post production with Vengeance 2 from Evolutionary Films and returns Vengeance star Stu Bennett along with casting Vinnie Jones.
Dead End II already released a first look trailer several weeks ago hailing from Black Camel and ERS Media. Check it out below and peep our Dead End review by clicking here.
