Grindstone Entertainment has acquired all US rights to Game of Assassins (formerly titled The Gauntlet) directed by Matt Eskandari, Bloody Disgusting can report.
We now have a few exclusive images from the action/horror film featuring international stars Bai Ling (Crank), Warren Kole (The Following) and Dustin Nguyen of 21 Jump St.
You’ll also find an early trailer for the film to be released through Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
“The story follows five strangers who awake in an underground, medieval dungeon and must organize together for the sinister adventure that awaits.“
The pic was co-financed by Chinese film production partners and shot in Beijing. It is produced by Wellington Sun, Daniel Wei, Jonathan Shih, Matt Eskandari and Adam Lawson, with a script by Lawson.
The feature, unveiled at Screamfest last October, has gone on to garner numerous awards including Best Director and Best Picture accolades across the festival circuit.
