The film was co-penned by producer/writer Chad Law (Daylight’s End) and filmmaker Josh Ridgway (Howlers) who both have a proven track record in indie action cinema. The Exchange will be bringing Section Eight to the American Film Market for sales to distributors during the first week of November.

“We are so very excited to add a great action movie like Section Eight to our line-up,” said Nat McCormick, EVP worldwide sales and distribution at The Exchange. “Dolph, Scott and Ryan are top-notch actors. We couldn’t hope for a better cast.”

This will be the fifth time that Adkins and Lundgren will go toe to toe as the two action heavyweights have tangled in the past action movies The Expendables 2, Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning, and Legendary and will also engage in combat in the upcoming Castle Falls which is currently in post production.

Starring in the movie along with Adkins and Lundgren is Ryan Kwanten who starred in the hit HBO series True Blood as well as the 2018 thriller The Hurricane Heist. 

Adkins will next be seen in the one take, real time actioner One Shot which hits VOD on November 5th. Adkins is currently filming John Wick: Chapter 4 and recently wrapped filming on the Netflix action-horror film The Day Shift alongside Jamie Fox.
