The plot follows Anna Wyncomb (Akerman), who is introduced to an underground, all-female fight club in order to turn her life around, when she discovers she is much more personally connected to the history of the club than she could ever imagine. Imagine Netflix’s Glow meets UFC. Standing in Anna’s way of glory in the cage is an upstart fierce combatant played by I can’t believe she is in everything, Bella Thorne.
Dominique Jackson, former pro-wrestler Kevin Nash, Fortune Feimster, Dulcé Sloan, and Alec Mapa round out the cast.
Producers are Akerman, Yale Productions’ Jordan Yale Levine, Jordan Beckerman, and Michael J. Rothstein, Idiot Savant Pictures’ Anne Clements as well as Frances Lausell and Ash Christian, who spearheaded the film’s development. Christian, a beloved Emmy-winning independent producer, tragically passed away last month at age 35.
Chick Fight is scheduled to be released on November 13, 2020, by Quiver Distribution.
