Upcoming action film Lights Out, starring Frank Grillo, Mekhi Phifer, Scott Adkins and Dermot Mulroney, has added Blue October frontman Justin Furstenfeld, Amaury Nolasco and UFC fighter Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone to its cast.
The movie, from Firebrand and being sold at the virtual EFM by The Exchange, comes from director Christian Sesma (Paydirt), based on an original screenplay by Garry Charles (Welcome to Acapulco) and Chad Law (The Hit List), and follows a drifting ex-soldier (Grillo) who turns underground fighter with the help of a just released ex-con, pitting him against corrupt cops and hired killers now gunning for him and all those he cares about.
