WorldFilmGeek Hall of Famer Alexander Nevsky is making a return to the action genre after working on both a horror and a Western in an upcoming thriller set to begin shooting this Spring.

Described as a meshing of The Raid and Die Hard, Savage Attack is about CIA operative who must save his former mentor from an insane asylum under siege by hired killers. Matthias Hues has signed on to co-star in the film.

Joe Cornet will be directing the film from a script by Craig Hamann. Art Camacho will be serving as stunt coordinator and fight choreographer.

Savage Attack will begin shooting this spring for a late 2022 release.
