The world of mixed martial arts has seen more than its fair share of violence over the years, but never like this. That’s right, kids! The folks over at YouTube’s BlackboxTV are back with something that kicks like a bull! Read on for your first look at Everlast.
From the Press Release
BlackboxTV, the horror-themed YouTube channel by Tony E. Valenzuela, collaborated with MMA and UFC legend Frank Shamrock for Everlast, a horror short film set in the world of mixed martial arts, at YouTube Space LA.
The film, a modern retelling of a classic horror story in the violent world of MMA, tells the tale of the strong, proud, and undefeated Angel Shepard. He thinks he’s the best fighter that’s ever competed in mixed-martial arts. One evening he’s confronted by a stranger offering him the opportunity to achieve the legendary fame he’s desperately sought but only under one condition – he must be willing to risk everything.
“Everlast” features a cameo by the #1 ranked female boxer Mikaela Mayer. The full cast includes:
Everlast, currently in post-production, was shot mainly at YouTube Space LA, and the crew built a state-sanctioned fight cage inside the facility’s Stage 1. The film was financed in part by a grant from Technicolor’s Creative District.
The filmmakers are currently aiming for a summer 2014 premiere on BlackboxTV, YouTube’s largest horror channel.
