Fantasia ’11: ‘Brawler’ Poster Tenses Up

Premiering at the Fantasia Film Festival in July, inside you’ll find a tense teaser poster for The Lost director Chris Sivertson’s new thriller that reteams him with actor Marc Senter. This time Senter acts as star and producer hiring Sivertson to write and direct Brawler, which is based on a true story.

Described as in the vein of Martin Scorsese’s Mean Streets, Brawler follows two brothers competing in an underground circuit of illicit New Orleans riverboat brawls, struggling to survive their opponents, the crime boss they work for, and ultimately, each other.

Senter, who is a trained martial artists, will square off against his producing partner Nathan Grubbs (Privateer, Down in New Orleans ) in the ring.

Senter also stars in Cabin Fever 2, and can be seen in Simon Rumley’s SXSW festival hit Red White & Blue.

Sivertson’s Jack Ketchum adaptation The Lost received wide praise in the horror community and by major mags.
