It seems like every year at Comic-Con, Legion M has an exciting movie project to share. This year, it involves the man we all hope gets to play Deathstroke again someday. Check out the trailer for Archenemy:
Not a single word, but that was intense, wasn’t it? We do get to learn a bit more from the synopsis: “The film tells the story of Max Fist played by Joe Manganiello, who claims to be a hero from another dimension who fell through time and space to earth, where he has no powers. No one believes his stories except for a local teen named Hamster, played by Skylan Brooks, and his older sister, Indigo, played by Zolee Griggs. Together, they take to the streets to wipe out the local drug syndicate.”
Joe Manganiello plays Max Fist, and is joined by Skylan Brooks as Hamster, Zolee Griggs as Indigo, Amy Seimetz as Cleo Ventrix, Glenn Howerton as The Manager. Whether or not Max is a hero remains to be seen. This clearly doesn’t look like your typical superhero movie.
As for behind the scenes, the film is produced by Daniel Noah, Lisa Whalen and Elijah Wood for SpectreVision, along with Kim Sherman, Adam Egypt Mortimer, and 359’s Joe Manganiello and Nick Manganiello. Executive producers include SpectreVision’s Stacy Jorgensen, Legion M’s Paul Scanlan, Jeff Annison, Terri Lubaroff, and David Baxter, Head Gear Films’ Phil Hunt and Compton Ross, Almost Never Films’ Danny Chan, Yiju Chen, and Danny Roth, Voltage Pictures’ Babacar Diene, and Alan Pao and Luke Daniels.
