Vince Vaughn is on a mission to bring the pain to himself and anyone around him in ‘Brawl In Cell Block 99.’ RLJE Films released the first trailer Tuesday afternoon.
If you are not familiar with filmmaker S. Craig Zahler’s work, you need to watch the brutally violent western ‘Bone Tomahawk.’ If Zahler can make Vaughn half the badass Kurt Russell was in ‘Bone Tomahawk,’ ‘Brawl In Cell Block 99’ will be an insane ride.
Craig Zahler’s second film will hit the film festival circuit with the Venice Film Festival first, followed by the Toronto International Film Festival, and then Fantastic Fest.
About the film:
In ‘Brawl In Cell Block 99,’ a former boxer named Bradley (Vince Vaughn) loses his job as an auto mechanic, and his troubled marriage is about to end. At this crossroads in his life, he feels that he has no better option than to work for an old buddy as a drug courier. This improves his situation until the terrible day that he finds himself in a gunfight between a group of police officers and his own ruthless allies. When the smoke clears, Bradley is badly hurt and thrown in prison, where his enemies force him to commit acts of violence that turn the place into a savage battleground.
‘Brawl In Cell Block 99’ is written and directed by S. Craig Zahler, and stars Vince Vaughn, Jennifer Carpenter, Udo Kier, Marc Blucas, and Don Johnson.
‘Brawl In Cell Block 99’ hits theaters on October 6.
