Action star and filmmaker Alexander Nevsky isn’t letting the pandemic slow him with some new projects coming out soon. The first being Red Prophecies which we highlighted a few months ago. Now Nevsky, who has starred in a slew of action hits is tackling a genre he’s never done before…the Western! That’s right, Nevsky is poised and ready to star in the new western-horror flick Assault on Rio Bravo and Nevsky was gracious enough to supply us with details and some BTS images. Check it out below!

Texas, 1875 – A bloodthirsty gang of outlaws is on the eve of attacking a border town to free their leader from prison. They’re an army of ruthless killers known as the most dangerous gang in the West. Their plan is to burn the entire town to the ground with everyone who in it. But a handle of warriors led by a mysterious foreigner will stand in their way…

Nevsky will star and it will be directed by Joe Cornet (A Prayer for the Damned) and executive produced by Eric Brenner (Crazy Heart) and his ETA Films. Nevsky will also produce under his Hollywood Storm production banner.

Composer Sean Murray (Deep Blue Sea 2) will serve as a co-producer on Assault on Rio Bravo and will compose the musical score. Director Joe Cornet’s previous westerns are Incident At Guilt Ridge and A Prayer For The Damned. Link to the trailer of his upcoming film Promise is below (Joe directed, produced and starred in it alongside Academy Award nominee Don Murray):

Casting is currently underway in Los Angeles so expect to hear more on this one on the near future. I personally think it’ll be quite the sight to see Nevsky ride a horse and blast off with a six shooter.

Keep it locked and loaded right here for more to come on Assault on Rio Bravo and all future Alexander Nevsky projects as we are your destination for everything action in 2021 and beyond!
