We recently broke the news of Joe Carnahan’s War Party that is set out to produce Action films landing a plump founding of over 50 Million Dollars . One was wonder if the amount was too high for a specialized genre enterprise however the answer is right out there.
El Chicano which is the lowest budget action film in the War Party slate has landed a All US rights deal with Briarcliff.
El Chicano, a Latino superhero film with an all-Hispanic cast that just had its premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival and won rave reviews.
The action film tells the story of twin brothers Diego and Pedro (both played by Raúl Castillo), who grew up together on the streets of East Los Angeles. As adults, their lives took radically different paths as Diego became a celebrated detective for the LAPD, and Pedro turned to a dead-end life of crime.
When clues start connecting Pedro’s death to a case Diego is working on, a mythological figure from his youth, The Ghetto Grim Reaper, draws Diego in deeper than he ever expected. He becomes that figure, an Hispanic version of Batman or Black Panther.
Carnahan is producing with legendary action film producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura .
The film also stars George Lopez, Aimee Garcia, Emilio Rivera, Kate del Castillo, Mr. Criminal, Noel G. Marco Rodriguez, Marlene Forte, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Sal Lopez, David Castañeda and Armida Lopez.
Bray has worked with Carnahan on most of his projects and was keen to take this project up.
Briarcliff CEO Ortenberg has done multiple films with Carnahan like The Grey, and Narc, and aside from The Grey he worked with Grillo on End of Watch and Homefront.
What’s interesting is that the film has managed a real sale covering most of it’s cost . War party has a strong business plan and financial structure , the company is sure to be a force to reckon with .
We at amdb.in wish the entire team all the very best.
