Lightning Entertainment has picked up International sales rights to Ascendant Releasing’s Martial Arts action film Nightshooters starring upcoming action star and SAG Nominated Jean-Paul Ly (Jailbreak).
“We’re delighted to be working with Lightning Entertainment on Nightshooters. They immediately saw the same potential in Marc Price’s vision for the film that we did, and they’re the prefect partners for this. We hope this is the first of many collaborations between us,” says Bart Ruspoli of Ascendant.
Andrew Brown, head of sales at Lightning commented: “Lightning are thrilled to be working with such a talented and exciting team on internationally award winning director Marc Price’s third film. Together with Jean-Paul Ly, touted as one of the biggest action stars of his generation, and a fantastic cast, the team have delivered a stunning blend of superb martial arts action with the very best of a British gangster film!”
Nightshooters wrapped production in early January and will be released in the UK in July of this year by Ascendant Releasing.
Lightning Entertainment will start approaching buyers at the Berlinale this week.
