Premiere Entertainment Group (PEG) has bulked up its Cannes sales slate with worldwide rights to Joe Cornet’s action western Gunfight At Rio Bravo starring Alexander Nevsky.
Craig Hamann has written the screenplay in which 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.
Cornet, Matthias Hues, Olivier Gruner, and Anna Oris round out the key cast. The film was produced by Nevsky for Hollywood Storm. ETA Films’ Eric Brenner and San Rafael Productions’ Joe Cornet served as executive producers.
PEG is in town to talk to buyers about There Are No Saints written by Paul Schrader and starring Paz Vega, Ron Perlman, and Tim Roth, and No Future with Catherine Keener, Charlie Heaton, and Rosa Salazar.
The company is also shopping Cam Gigandet’s trio of original productions comprising Shrapnel with Jason Patric, Black Warrant with Tom Berenger, and Blowback starring Randy Couture.
