Deadline is reporting that Altitude have acquired the UK and Ireland distribution rights for the action thriller Archenemy starring Joe Manganiello.
Archenemy focuses on the story of Max Fist, a man who claims to be a hero from another dimension who fell through time and space to Earth, where he has no powers. No one believes his stories except for a local teen named Hamster. Together, they take to the streets to wipe out the local drug syndicate and its vicious crime boss known as The Manager.
Laura Wilson, Head of Acquisitions at Altitude, released a statement saying:
We are thrilled to be bringing these different, but equally exciting films to UK audiences. We’re excited about Archenemy and working with Adam Egypt Mortimer and the talented team at Spectrevision.
A few days ago, RLJE Films acquired the North American rights for the action thriller. The film is written and directed by Adam Egypt Mortimer, from a story by Mortimer and Lucas Passmore. SpectreVision’s Daniel Noah, Lisa Whalen and Elijah Wood are serving as producers the project alongside Kim Sherman, with Stacy Jorgensen serving as executive producers alongside Voltage Pictures’ Babacar Diene.
Archenemy also stars Skylan Brooks, Amy Seimetz, Glenn Howerton, Zolee Griggs, Joseph D. Reitman and Mac Brandt.
