Dark Castle and After Dark Films will debut a new action movie franchise called After Dark Action, according to After Dark Films’ President Courtney Solomon. The first generation of After Dark Action movies includes five original, adrenaline-pumping films starring international stars such as Jean Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Peter Weller, Jim Caviezel, Cung Le and Christian Slater. AFTER DARK ACTION will showcase the movies theatrically as a commercial film festival in markets nationwide and on VOD on May 11.
After Dark Action combines Joel Silver’s Dark Castle and After Dark Films for what’s being described as a series of high quality, high-octane action pictures.
“Helping Courtney and After Dark put these films together has been a great experience,” Silver says. “The audience is in for a treat.”
