Another AFM update today. According to investorideas, news comes out that upcoming WW2 thriller ‘War Pigs’, headlined by Mickey Rourke and Dolph Lundgren, will score a theatrical run in North America, eyed for a spring release.
Verdi Productions producer Chad A. Verdi told Investor Ideas that Cinedigm acquired North American rights and plans a spring 2015 theatrical release. The film stars Mickey Rourke and Dolph Lundgren. Ryan Little, the director of 2013 WWII drama Saints and Soldiers, helmed War Pigs. The plot has a ragtag group of misfits on a secret mission behind enemy lines to find and capture a secret weapon being developed by Adolf Hitler and the SS. Luke Goss (Hellboy II), Noah Segan (Looper) and UFC fighter Chuck Liddell also co-star. Cinedigm plans to release War Pigs theatrically next spring.
The film could be one of two (theatrical) winners for Lundgren in 2015, the other being Skin Trade, co-starring Tony Jaa. It’s likely that War Pigs gets a limited run however, but it’s still good news. Limited theatrical is better than no theatrical, somebody obviously has confidence in the movie. New pictures have also surfaced on Facebook, which you can check out below.
