Anchor Bay Bringing VIGILANTE DIARIES Your Way When Action/Comedy Hits Theaters/iTunes June 24th And Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand July 5th
I’m a sucker for a good action/comedy and this announcement of Anchor Bay unleashing VIGILANTE DIARIES this June/July is news to my ears. Based off the popular web series on Chill.com, the film features quite the ensemble cast, with Paul Sloan (I Am Wrath, The Night Crew), Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (The A-Team, UFC Light Heavyweight Champ), action icon Michael Jai White (The Dark Knight, Black Dynamite), Jason Mewes (Clerks, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back) and Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill). The film is directed by Christian Sesma (Shoot the Hero) from a script written by Christian Sesma and Paul Sloan.
Vigilante Diaries revolves around a team of black-ops agents turned crime-fighters, led by an elusive, brooding anti-hero of near-mythical physical and weapons skills, known only as The Vigilante (Sloan). Abandoned by governments, corporations and his handlers and with a bounty on his head, The Vigilante’s jam-packed missions of rescue and revenge take the audience from the mega-mansions and underbelly of Los Angeles to far-flung locales including Iraq, Armenia, Russia, and the UK. The film introduces a cast of colorful, dangerous, and hilarious characters with each of these missions. Mewes plays Beverly Hills documentary filmmaker Michael Hanover, who records the exploits of The Vigilante and is thrust headfirst into the middle of the story he is documenting—becoming a high-value target himself in the process. Mix in a trio of Asian femme fatales, a cadre of ruthless Armenian mobsters, and at the top, a pair of deep cover super-spies hell-bent on throwing the world into chaos – it’s no wonder it’s up to The Vigilante, not God, to sort ‘em all out.
