Story follows a turf war that has been raging in the fictional seaside community of Old Port for generations. On one side, the Syndicate – an evil gang of crank-head misfits set on muscling the San Diego family out of the parcel of land they own in the center of town. On the other side, the San Diego family: twin brothers Tony and Johnny and their sister Salsa are the last of a bloodline that stretches back for generations. Their mother, father and brothers were all brutally murdered in violent clashes with the Syndicate over the years. Now the Syndicate is set on crushing the last remnants of the San Diego family, and taking over Old Port for good. When they kidnap Salsa and hold her for ransom, all hell breaks loose. The twins and their best friend Chuck Hank must decide whether to hand over the deed to their family’s land in order to save their sister or fight.
Jonathan Keevil and Tyler Dawson star as the San Diego Twins, while “Bellflower” star Evan Glodell plays Chuck Hank.
In addition to Arquette, Segan (“Looper”) and De La Huerta, the supporting cast includes Troian Bellisario (“Pretty Little Liars”), Michael Pare, Steve Talley, Andrew Bryniarski (“The Program”), Jamil Walker Smith, Brett Gelman (“Go On”), Howard Rosenman (“Milk”) and former UFC champion Don Frye.
Arquette will play lead villain Lordy P, the evil Mohawk-clad boss of The Syndicate, while Bryniarski will play his gigantic brother and henchman. Both are hell-bent on taking down the San Diego Twins and The Block.
De La Huerta and Bellisario are the backbone of San Diego family. Segan, Pare, Talley, Smith and Frye are all tough-as-nails members of The Block Compatriots. Gelman and Rosenman play the two citizens crazy enough not to flee The Block when The Syndicate appears to have won.
The producers have teamed up with highly-regarded stunt coordinator TJ White (“Live Free or Die Hard”) of T-Minus Productions to spearhead and produce the high-concept action scenes. Several of the fight sequences will be staged as homage to 80’s action movies and side-scroll video games.
Coatwolf member Keevil will produce and direct from his own script. Glodell, Vincent Grashaw and Chelsea St. John will produce for Coatwolf alongside Gabriel Cowan and John Suits of New Artists Alliance. Caliber’s Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller will executive produce with Michael Sakoi.
CAA will represent the film’s domestic distribution rights.
