Shogun Films’ action-thriller Renegades gets Cannes distribution


Regular readers here at FM may know that our writer Tom Jolliffe is also a hugely prolific screenwriter, and his latest project – the star-studded action thriller renegades – just secured a series of distribution sales at Cannes, including Saban Films which secured the North American rights.

Led by veteran action director Daniel Zirilli (hollow point, The Asian Connection) and produced by Jonathan Sothcott of Shogun Films, renegades follows the former Special Forces comrades of a Green Beret veteran, who band together to seek revenge and justice after he is murdered in cold blood by a ruthless London drug gang.

renegades features a cast that includes Nick Moran (lock, reserve and two smoking barrels), Lee Majors (The fell guy) and Danny Trejo (Machete) with Ian Ogilvy (We still kill the old fashioned way), Louis Mandylor (Collection agents), Billy Murray (The rise of the infantryman), Patsy Kensit (lethal weapon 2), Jeanine Nerissa Sothcott (Nemesis), Michael Brandon (Dempsey and Makepeace), Paul Barbier (The Long Good Friday), Michel Paré (streets of fire) and, in one of his later roles, Tommy “Tiny” Lister (Without taboo).

renegades delivers on all levels for audiences, with a wonderful cast of beloved veteran actors, high-octane action sequences, and a clever, witty storyline that elevates it above the fare ‘bang bang’ standard,” producer Jonathan Sothcott said. “We think we have an instant cult movie and are already developing a sequel.”
