RLJE Films has acquired North American rights to director Adam Egypt Mortimer’s Archenemy, the action thriller that is having its world premiere next month at Beyond Fest in Los Angeles. It marks the third tie-up between genre producer SpectreVision and RJLE Films following the releases of Mandy and Color Out of Space. With the deal, Archenemy will now hit theaters day-and-date on December 11.
In the film co-written by Mortimer and Lucas Passmore, Joe Manganiello stars as Max Fist, 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 (Skylan Brooks). Together, they take to the streets to wipe out the local drug syndicate and its vicious crime boss known as The Manager (Glenn Howerton). Zolee Griggs, Paul Scheer and Amy Seimetz also star.
Archenemy was produced by SpectreVision’s Daniel Noah, Lisa Whalen, and Elijah Wood along with Kim Sherman, Adam Egypt Mortimer, Joe Manganiello, and Nick Manganiello.
Archenemy will be released in theaters, On Demand, and Digital on December 11, 2020.
