Premiere Entertainment Group (PEG), a Los Angeles-based production, financing, and sales company, has licensed North American rights to Shout! Studios for the action western GUNFIGHT AT RIO BRAVO starring three-time Mr. Universe and international action star Alexander Nevsky (Showdown in Manila, Black Rose). The film is scheduled for a limited theatrical release next year on January 13th, followed by a digital and national home entertainment release on January 17th.

Nevsky plays a mysterious Russian gunslinger who aids a marshal and a sheriff as they stand up to a bloodthirsty outlaw gang known as The Hellhounds who have invaded their small East Texas town. Joe Cornet, Matthias Hues, Olivier Gruner, Natalie Denise Sperl, Kerry Goodwin and John Fallon round out the key cast. Joe Cornet directed the western from Craig Hamann’s screenplay. The film was produced by Nevsky for Hollywood Storm. ETA Films’ Eric Brenner and San Rafael Productions’ Joe Cornet served as executive producers. 

“I’m really happy GUNFIGHT AT RIO BRAVO will be released in the U.S. by Shout! Factory. My western debut 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 Shout! and Premiere.”
“GUNFIGHT AT RIO BRAVO is perhaps the most unique of all the westerns I have directed. Partly based in fact, it has terrific action while maintaining classic western standards. In short, it has something for everyone,” said Cornet.

The deal was negotiated by Carlos Rincon of Premiere Entertainment on behalf of the producers and Jordan Fields, SVP of acquisitions for Shout! Studios. Premiere Entertainment is handling worldwide sales. Shout! Studios previously released several western thrillers, including A Tale of Two Guns, starring Tom Berenger and Casper Van Dien, and the critically acclaimed Shout! Studios’ original film Old Henry, starring Tim Blake Nelson.
