Nearly a few months since revealing the poster, industry stunt professional Dan Rizzuto‘s directing debut, Torn: Dark Bullets, is ramping up its April 24 release on Amazon Prime with an official trailer.
A raw and unapologetic look into a police shooting, racism, and the connections they share. Without stating that we know the answers, but not being afraid to ask the direct questions.
While on duty, Detective Pearce shoots and kills a black teenager. During the criminal trial, Pearce is found not guilty. Despite his acquittal, Pearce’s personal life deteriorates as he uses booze and self-pity to cope. Amidst one of these bouts with the bottle, Pearce becomes aware of a civil lawsuit filed by the family for loss of life and damages. In a moment of alcohol-fueled self-righteousness, Pearce decides to confront the parents of the victim. When Pearce arrives at their home, circumstances spiral into a hostile situation that continues to ramp in intensity as more people become involved, creating a pressure cooker where all secrets are revealed.
Torn: Dark Bullets signals the launchpad of Rizzuto’s Cerebral Monkey Entertainment, producing along with Imaginere Capital. The project is the first of a entire slate Rizzuto is planning, which includes a hopeful reunion with Wu Assassins star Iko Uwais depending on the status of the Covid-19 pandemic going forward.
Torn: Dark Bullets stars Sam Vincent, Dexter Bell and William ‘Big Sleeps’ Stewart, along with Karen Holness, and Christina Lewall. Follow the official fanpage here to learn more about the film and keep up with its release.
