“We’re extremely stoked to be releasing this very hot tale of survival and revenge, with it’s exciting storyline and an incredibly gritty performance by Mena Suvari in the lead role.” said Keith Leopard, President Uncork’d Entertainment. “The action never lets up. Very excited for fans of the genre to see it.”
Says director Blake-Thomas, whose previous films include Just Swipe and Maybe I’m Fine. “This film was different from some of my past works, as it dealt more with stunts and adult themes. Working with stunt coordinators and stunt doubles, as well as actors doing their own stunts, was such fun. Experiencing the sort of dance that comes with stunts was a new aspect that I am happy to add to my directing repertoire.”
