ACTION WESTERN SEQUEL ‘TAKEN FROM RIO BRAVO’ STARRING ALEXANDER NEVSKY NOW HAS A TRAILER AND INTERNATIONAL DISTRIBUTION!
Premiere Entertainment Group (PEG), a Los Angeles-based production, financing, and sales company, has acquired worldwide rights to action western TAKEN FROM RIO BRAVO starring three-time “Mr. Universe” winner Alexander Nevsky (Showdown inManila, Black Rose). The film, which is being presented at the Cannes market, is a sequel to Gunfight at Rio Bravo which also starred Nevsky.
The action western sees the return of the mysterious Russian gunslinger who teams up with a sheriff in pursuit of a gang of sadistic human traffickers known as The Posse, who have kidnapped five women. Joe Cornet, Cynthia Rothrock, Irina Antonenko, Matthias Hues, Tatiana Neva, John Fallon, Kerry Goodwin and Don “The Dragon” Wilson round out the key cast.
Joe Cornet directed the film from Craig Hamann’s screenplay. Nevsky produced the film for Hollywood Storm alongside executive producers Eric Brenner for ETA Films, Joe Cornet for San Rafael Productions and Douglas “Fini” Finical.
Premiere CEO and president Elias Axume brokered the deal with Nevsky.
Gunfight at Rio Bravo was released in the U.S. by Shout! Studios in January.
The first film was a true throwback to the old rule westerns that Clint Eastwood made back in the day with Nevsky creating his best character to date. There’s enough gunslinging action to satisfy the crowd and the sequel looks solid with some high-octane shootouts and slo-mo shots of bad guys getting drilled with bullets.
