Siren, The Solution Complete $50 Million Financing

Siren, The Solution Complete $50 Million Financing
Siren Studios and The Solution Entertainment Group have completed financing on a multi-year $50 million revolving equity fund for development and production.

The coin is being used for a pair of projects for sale in Cannes — romantic comedy “Laggies,” starring Chloe Moretz and Sam Rockwell with Keira Knightly in talks to come on board; and heist thriller “The Forger,” starring John Travolta.

The funds have been raised by Siren’s Brandon Nutt and Kyle Jackson.

The companies formed a strategic partnership last year that includes physical production, post production services and joint ownership of The Solution’s genre sales label Synchronicity.

“When Lisa Wilson and I launched The Solution in 2012 one of our goals was to be a one-stop finance, production & sales operation,” said Solution topper Myles Nestel. “The partnership with Siren Studios on this new fund opens the doors still further to those ambitions and our aim to be a

Hijacked Blu-Ray Review

Randy Couture, Dominic Purcell and Vinnie Jones star in the plane thriller Hijacked, directed by Brandon Nutt. Hijacked is your basic straight-to-dvd B action movie with a cast full of stars that never really had their moment to shine. The film also comes with a plot that was probably scribbled down on a napkin some time ago in the 90s and CGI blood that was most likely rendered in Microsoft Paint. Still, underneath all of the cheap production values there lies a movie that is almost watchable, because of its cheesy dialogue, action and story.

Special Agent Paul Ross (Randy Couture) is tracking down a crime lord that leads him to the same plane in which his fiancé is boarding. He boards the plane and shortly after realizes the plane is equipped with a bomb and terrorists, which makes the night a little more frustrating than he had hoped for.

Two New Clips From Hijacked, Starring Randy Couture And Dominic Purcell

Ufc legend Randy Couture and actor Dominic Purcell star in this latest straight-to-home video airplane actioner Hijacked, directed by Brandon Nutt. The film comes to Blu-Ray and DVD on July 31st, 2012.

We previously posted a trailer and a clip from the film and now we have two more clips featuring our action stars flexing their acting chops, while taking out a few baddies in the process.

I’m not usually one for this grade of film, but occasionally something like Hijacked can provide you with 2 hours of mindless entertainment and nonstop laughter. The acting looks cheesy and over-the-top, while the violence looks painfully rendered in CGI and not all that creative. I’m willing to give this one a shot, but only because Hijacked could become something of an underground classic.

Clip one is titled Cargo Hold and it briefly shows Couture and Purcell as they tussle with a possible rogue agent.

Blu-ray Review: Hijacked

Hijacked

Stars: Randy Couture, Vinnie Jones, Craig Fairbrass, Dominic Purcell, Gina Philips, Tiffany Dupont | Written by Brandon Nutt, Declan O’Brien, Scoop Wasserstein | Directed by Brandon Nutt

The second aeroplane-set film I’ve watched in as many days, Hijacked is, for wont of a better explanation, a quasi-remake of Executive Decision with Vinnie Jones in the Steven Seagal role and Mma star and member of The Expendables, Randy Couture, in the Kurt Russell role. See where this is going?

Tough Us government agent Paul Ross is at the forefront of an international operation to smash a global terrorist organisation and crime syndicate known only as The Tribe, a group notorious for obtaining its funds from the drug trade and illegal arms dealing. When a tip-off as to the whereabouts of the Tribe’s leader turns out to be a set-up that lands Ross in the middle of a bloody firefight

DVD Review - Hijacked (2012)

Hijacked, 2012.

Directed by Brandon Nutt.

Starring Randy Couture, Dominic Purcell, Vinnie Jones, Craig Fairbrass, Holy McCallany, Tiffany Dupony and Gina Philips.

Synopsis:

A group of hijackers target a luxury private jet belonging to the world's richest industrialist, but among their hostages are a tough-as-nails government agent looking to bring their organisation down.

Following The Expendables, there has been a host of straight to video films churned out, allowing the more minor players the chance to ride off the success nicely. As well as providing plenty of new films for established video maestro Dolph Lundgren, for Steve Austin and Randy Couture, it allowed them to try and establish themselves their own action movie careers. Austin had starred in a handful of films before the first Expendables, but since then he’s been pretty prolific. Randy Couture now, throws his hat into the ring.

Hijacked is essentially Executive Decision mixed with Passenger 57.

Randy Couture Gets Hijacked

Randy Couture is taking time off being expendable to become a little not expendable in a new actioner called “Hijacked” for director Brandon Nutt (“The Last Resort”). The film promises to be along the lines of past plane-themed actioners like “Delta Force” and “Executive Decision”, minus Chuck Norris and Steven Seagal dying in Act One and pissing off all the Seagal fans who had no idea that was going to happen heading into the movie. But back to “Hijacked”. No trailer yet, but you can check out the DVD/Blu-ray box art and some stills from the movie below. Special Agent Ross’s (Couture) plans to reconcile with his ex-fiancé are ruined when she boards a private jet that is targeted by hijackers working for the same crime lord he is chasing. With no time to inform his team, Ross wriggles his way aboard the aircraft and risks it all

Lionsgate - The Last Resort

If I were America Olivo, I'd just stay in the city where it's safe. You may remember her from the Friday the 13th relaunch as the woman in the pre-title sequence who showed us her ample bosom and then got roasted alive in a sleeping bag. Now she's off to a tropical paradise that for her and others may very well prove to be The Last Resort.
