Actor Michael Rowe is huge in the realm of fanboydom with his portrayal of DC’s iconic Deadshot on The CW’s Arrow and The Flash. Unlike Will Smith who only has played the character once in a film, Rowe has had the distinct honor to play the lethal assassin in a long story arc on the shows. Rowe has also starred in the much hyped Ninjak VS The Valiant Universe where he played the title character in the web series that also featured Power Ranger Jason David Frank.
Now Rowe is back and he’s switching things up and starring in the indie crime thriller Crown And Anchor which is helmed by his brother Andrew Rowe. The film just hit DVD and Digital this week so check out the trailer below!
A raw look at the effects of childhood trauma through the eyes of two estranged cousins, writer-director Andrew Rowe’s “unique, rather unflinching perspective on the fragile nature of the human psyche”* bows July 2.
CROWN AND ANCHOR follows James Downey (Michael Rowe), who is living a disciplined and straight edge lifestyle as a result of growing up with an abusive alcoholic father. His estranged cousin Danny (Matt Wells) is drowning his own trauma with drugs and booze. When their lives are forced to intersect once more, they each begin to unravel as the past returns with violent and tragic consequences.
Featuring a blistering punk/hardcore soundtrack, CROWN AND ANCHOR stars Michael Rowe (‘Deadshot’ on TV’s Arrow), Matt Wells (“Designated Survivor”), Natalie Brown (“Saw V”), Robert Joy (“CSI : NY”), Stephen McHattie (“Orphan Black”) and Ben Cotton (“The X-Files”).
CROWN AND ANCHOR is now on DVD and from Uncork’d Entertainment.
