Vertical Entertainment has acquired U.S. distribution rights to the action-thriller A Day to Die, which recently wrapped shooting in Jackson, Mississippi.
Frank Grillo (Captain America and The Purge franchises, “Kingdom,” and Boss Level), Bruce Willis (Die Hard franchise), Leon (“City on a Hill,” Cool Runnings), and Kevin Dillon (Platoon, “Entourage”) lead the cast that also includes Gianni Capaldi, Brooke Butler, Vernon Davis, Mohamed Karim, Alexander Kane, and introducing Curtis Nichouls.
In the film, “A disgraced parole officer (Dillon) is indebted to a local gang leader and forced to pull off a series of dangerous drug heists within twelve hours in order to pay the $2 million dollars he owes, rescue his kidnapped pregnant wife, and settle a score with the city’s corrupt police chief (Willis), who is working with the gang leader and double-crossed him years ago.”
Veteran filmmaker Wes Miller (River Runs Red, Hell on the Border) directs from the script he co-wrote with Scott Mallace and Rab Berry. Curtis Nichouls, Andrew van den Houten, and DJ Dodd produce.
When asked about the Vertical Entertainment acquisition, director Miller stated, “A filmmaker’s choice of distributor is extremely important, and I’m excited to partner with Vertical in bringing A Day to Die to the world. The team there welcomes diverse material from diverse filmmakers and have worked with some of the best actors and filmmakers working today.”
Capstone Group arranged to finance for its Blue Box Int division, which is handling global sales. The deal was negotiated by Christian Mercuri and Roman Viaris for Capstone Group, and Peter Jarowey and Josh Spector on behalf of Vertical Entertainment.
A Day to Die will be released by Vertical Entertainment in 2022.
