Alexander Nevsky (Moscow Heat, Black Rose) is advancing on Savage Attack, the long-awaited action project that first hit the radar back in June 2017. Nevsky will star and produce the pic, reuniting with Joe Cornet who will direct from a script by Craig Hamann.
Savage Attack is billed as “The Raid meets Die Hard”, in a story centered on a CIA operative who must save his former mentor from an insane asylum under siege by hired killers. Nevsky is producing via his Hollywood Storm banner in association with ETA films, with Eric Brenner co-producing.
Art Camacho, who previously collaborated with Nevsky on 2019 sports drama, Wild League, and on Cornet’s recently completed period western, Assault On Rio Bravo, will serve as stunt and fight coordinator.
A sequel to Nevsky and Cornet’s western is also in development with the first film slated for next year. The two are also working together as producer and director, respectively, on upcoming horror thriller, Night Of The Caregiver, currently in production and starring Eileen Dietz (The Exorcist) as reported earlier this month.
“I’m very happy to return to my favourite genre, after making all kind of movies (from comedies to horrors) and look forward to working again with the team of Assault on Rio Bravo” says Nevsky.
Savage Attack is aiming for a February 2022 start date in California, as we await further casting info.
