International action star and three-time Mr. Universe Alexander Nevsky will star in “Taken from Rio Bravo”, an action packed Western to be directed by Joe Cornet and executive produced by Eric Brenner.
Iconic martial artists Cynthia Rothrock, Don “The Dragon” Wilson and Matthias Hues will co-star alongside Nevsky, Joe Cornet, Kerry Goodwin and Robert Madrid. Casting is underway in Los Angeles and production is going to start in June.
Written by Craig Hamann, “Taken from Rio Bravo” is a direct sequel to “Assault on Rio Bravo” which was shot by the same team last spring. New chapter will look more like “Expendables” on the Wild West and tell the story of a dangerous rescue mission.
Composer Sean Murray will serve as a executive producer and will compose the musical score for the film. Nevsky will also produce through his Hollywood Storm production shingle. Cornet and San Rafael Productions will executive produce.
Alexander Nevsky had this to say about the project:
“I’m happy to be back to Western genre and make another movie with director / star Joe Cornet! We had a great time making “Assault on Rio Bravo” which is now completely finished and will have it’s first screening at Marche Du Film international market in Cannes. I always liked Sergio Leone movies with great Clint Eastwood but I also liked classic action films. So “Taken from Rio Bravo” will be a real Action Western!”
