The comedic action-adventure film ‘Showdown at the Odessa’ is heading to a North American release with Shout Studios acquiring the North American distribution rights to the movie. Not only do they plan on releasing it for streaming or home video, but also on the film festival circuit.
Film producer Christian de Gallegos said in a statement, “There’s no doubt Shout! Studios is the perfect champion for Showdown. Their brand as cult film connoisseurs is perfectly aligned with where we want to be. Thank you to (Shout exec Jordan Fields) and the team for supporting us and coming on board early.”
The synopsis is described as, “The action-comedy adventure follows a proud movie theater owner who must defend his family business from corporate developers alongside a legendary action star as art imitates life in a showdown for the ages.”
Shout Studios said in a statement that, “the multi-platform entertainment distribution and production arm of Shout! Factory, has acquired North American rights to SHOWDOWN AT THE ODESSA from Christian de Gallegos Films and Benaroya Pictures. Written and Directed by Orson Oblowitz (Frank and Ava, The Five Rules of Success), Oscar®-nominee Terrence Howard (Iron Man, Hustle & Flow) and Dolph Lundgren (Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, The Expendables) lead a stellar cast of John Savage (The Last Full Measure, The Deer Hunter), Amanda Righetti (The Mentalist, Reagan), Piper Curda (Legacies, The Wretched), Jon Sklaroff (Gifted, Graceland), and Mike Ferguson (Animal Kingdom, Amityville Uprising).”
