Directing duo Joe and Anthony Russo may be busy getting things moving with their end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at its current state, but that doesn’t mean they’re not privy to info and means that could help other film projects. As it stands they’ve gotten their hands and eyes on quite a few things and as of this week, it includes serving as producers for the new action comedy, Sexcastle.
The film is inspired by author Kyle Starks’s Image Comics 2015 graphic novel publication of the same name which reads as a throwback to action movies of the 1980s. Workaholics series helmer Kyle Newacheck is directing with said series co-star Blake Anderson in the title role for a story that centers on the world’s former greatest assassin who gets pulled back in after retiring in a small town.
The Russos’ are producing via their Getaway Productions banner with Mike Larocca with a release tentative for 2017 courtesy of 20th Century Fox, as reported by Deadline.
