News of a new film from Round One Entertainment that mixes martial arts and horror landed in our inbox, and it also includes two of our favorite horror stars so of course we’re happy to provide the first word on The Ultimate Throwdown.
From the Press Release:
The Ultimate Throwdown stars retired Team Lockout cage fighter Rob Davidson (Game of Deception), horror icon Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th, Sickle), scream queen Tiffany Shepis (pictured; Night of the Demons, Intrusion: Disconnected), and Mixed Martial Arts legend Bill “Superfoot” Wallace (A Force of One, Los Bravos).
The film is in the final stages of pre-production with the first day of production scheduled for July 24th near Portland, Indiana, with principal photography wrapping in mid-August. It was written and will be produced by Rob Davidson and is directed by Jim Dougherty. The score will be composed by Harry Manfredini (Friday the 13th, Deep Star Six), and the director of photography is Jim Timperman (Scalene, Little Big Top).
Days before Marshal Matt Cooper’s big MMA fight with Cane Morgan, what appears to be a routine police call changes the course of Matt’s future. An unexpected battle with a chemically altered killer nearly costs Matt his life. Following his recovery and return to duty, a new drug investigation leads Cooper back to a new confrontation with the killer in The Ultimate Throwdown.
Look for more soon!
