I can’t iterate enough how important it is that we don’t fall asleep on Jon Foo. The martial arts wunderkind who appeared in hits like House Of Fury, Tom Yum Goong and Universal Soldier: Regeneration is back once again with Timothy Woodward Jr. (4Got10, Weaponized) for western thriller, The Outsider, and the official trailer is here following its acquisition by Cinedigm a few days ago.
Revving up for a September 2018 release from Cinedigm, the new thriller, Silencer, is making way online with a polished and promising official trailer. Johnny Messner (Weaponized) takes the spotlight as a retired hitman forced to resurrect his deadly skillset and fight a one-man war against his former employer in order to rescue his kidnapped step-daughter.
Deadline’s Patrick Hipes is revealing the latest look at upcoming action thriller, The Silencer, reporting a September 4 VOD release from Cinedigm. Director Timothy Woodward Jr. reconvenes with actors Johnny Messner (Weaponized) and Danny Trejo (4Got10), telling of a retired hitman who must resurrect his skills to wage a one-man war against his former employer when his step-daughter is kidnapped.
Sean Mick wrote the film that teams Messner alongside former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, Tito Ortiz opposite Trejo’s role partnering with that of Ortiz’s fellow former UFC cohort Chuck Liddell; both, who share several film credits apart from contact sports fighting, compete against one another in 2004 and 2006 with Liddell claiming the victor. Both have been rivals since, which may very well be a clear selling point for this film once the hype gets going beyond this point.
“Status Media delivers another potent picture — Silencer is an explosive actioner with strong production values, high dramatic stakes and the added bonus of pitting legendary MMA rivals, Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell, against one another,” said Yolanda Macias, Cinedigm’s EVP Acquisitions. “Timothy and his team are excellent partners, and we are thrilled to be working with them on Silencer.”
AMERICAN VIOLENCE Presents A Chilling Character Study With Guns Blazing In The Official Red Band Trailer
Weaponized and 4Got10 helmer Timothy Woodward Jr. is back with an intense new thriller that’s sure to lend an eyeful of cerebral action and storytelling next month. Lo and behold, American Violence initiates its share of full tilt chaos with narrative driven by the tumultuous connection an unrelenting psychologist struggles to hold with a brooding death row inmate.
Jackson Shea (Kaiwi Lyman-Mersereau) has lived a life of deceit, brutality and corruption. But when a series of chilling, violent events lands him on Death Row, one psychologist (Denise Richards) must determine whether his violent behavior is inherent in his soul, or if he is able to be rehabilitated and saved from execution.
The title itself certainly grabs some intrigue and appeal and the performances here look well worth catching when Cinedigm releases the film in limited theaters, VOD and on Digital HD on February 3. Also starring Bruce Dern, Columbus Short, Johnny Messner, Michael Paré and featuring Stipe Miocic and Rob Gronkowski.
