Icons of Fright Interview With Everly Director Joe Lynch and Actress Jennifer Blanc

25 April 2015 3:51 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

It’s impossible to not like Joe Lynch. Quite easily one of the nicest guys around, you can definitely hear the passion for film in his voice, and the mere mention of a film that Lynch is a fan of sparks a lengthy conversation, which is always great to have. Having recently hit DVD/Bluray, Lynch’s newest film, the Salma Hayek-led action film Everly, is an intense and inventive spin on the modern day action film, and features not only good performances by Hayek and a lot of other great actors, but also Jennifer Blanc-Biehn (The Victim, The Divide).

We were able to have a chat with both Joe and Jen regarding Everly, what drew them to the project, and what’s coming next for them as well. Read on!

So the last time we spoke was right before the second season of Holliston arrived. You briefly mentioned »

China Box Office: ‘Wolf Warrior’ and ‘Kingsman’ Dominate $100 Million Weekend

6 April 2015 8:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Chinese-made war action film “Wolf Warrior” topped the Chinese box office over the weekend with a strong opening of $32.5 million.

It beat “Kingsman: The Secret Service” in a resilient second frame.

Many war films have had a tough time at the Chinese box office in recent years, but “Wolf Warrior” (aka “War Warrior”), which features a very Western plot about a special forces soldier who is forced out of the army and goes on to set up his own group of insurgents, had a strong debut.

Its success may have been helped by the huge recent performance of “The Taking of Tiger Mountain,” which reached over $150 million. The presence of martial arts ace Wu Jing and Scott Adkins in action roles also likely helped.

“Kingsman” earned $30.8 million over the full week, compared with its opening weekend’s $24.5 million. That gave it a total of $55.2 million after 10 days, according to box office tracking service Ent Group. »

WWE Studios, Richwater Films strike pact

3 April 2015 4:46 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

WWE Studios has formed an alliance with UK producer-financier Richwater Films to co-produce and co-finance two titles.

The first project will be Eliminators starring Scott Adkins (pictured) and WWE Superstar Bad News Barrett.

James Nunn will commence shooting in late spring in London on the tale of a former Us Federal Agent who comes out of the witness protection programme to protect his daughter from Europe’s most dangerous assassin.

Rampage is in development and centres on an American counterterrorism operative who must work with an English MI5 agent to take out a threat in London. The producers anticipated a production start later this year.

WWE Studios will handle worldwide rights on both titles.

“Having watched WWE programming since the 1991 Royal Rumble and regarding Vince McMahon as the ultimate entrepreneurial pioneer, I am thrilled to be in business with WWE Studios,” said Richwater Films CEO and founder Jonathan Sothcott.

WWE Studios to Partner with Richwater on Two Films

3 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

WWE Studios and British production-financing company Richwater Films are teaming to co-produce and co-finance action-thriller “Eliminators” and “Rampage,” Variety has learned exclusively.

“Eliminators” will be directed by James Nunn (“Tower Block”) and star Scott Adkins and WWE’s Wade Barrett. The story follows a former U.S. federal agent who must abandon the witness protection program and come out of hiding after his London home is mistakenly invaded — leading to him finding himself on the run from Europe’s most dangerous assassin to get his daughter to safety.

“Eliminators” will start shooting in London in the late spring.

“Rampage,” currently in development, follows an American counterterrorism operative who must work with an English MI5 agent to take down a dangerous terrorist in London. WWE and Richwater plan for the film to go into production later this year.
