Premiere Entertainment Group (PEG) has licensed North American rights to ITN Distribution for the action western TAKEN FROM RIO BRAVO starring three-time Mr. Universe and international action star Alexander Nevsky (Showdown in Manila, Black Rose).
Joe Cornet directed from Craig Hamann’s screenplay in which Nevsky reprises his role from Gunfight At Rio Bravo as a 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.
Cornet, Cynthia Rothrock, Matthias Hues, Tatiana Neva, John Fallon and Don “The Dragon” Wilson round out the key cast.
The film was produced by Nevsky for Hollywood Storm. ETA Films’ Eric Brenner, San Rafael Productions’ Joe Cornet and Douglas “Fini” Finical served as executive producers.
“I’m really happy TAKEN FROM RIO BRAVO will be released in the U.S. by my friend Stuart Alson’ ITN Distribution. Our western sequel may have a lot of action, but it’s also a great story about friendship and the endless fight between good and evil,” said Nevsky. “I can’t wait for American audiences to watch it thanks to ITN and PEG!”
