May 23, 2016 Vigilante Diaries Set For Release via Anchor Bay
It was announced today that Anchor Bay Entertainment will be releasing highly anticipated action-comedy film Vigilante Diaries in select theaters and on iTunes on June 24, 2016, and On Demand, Blu-ray™ and DVD as of July 5, 2016. Based off the popular web series on Chill.com, the film features an all-star cast led by Paul Sloan (I Am Wrath 2016, The Night Crew 2015), Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (The A-Team 2010, UFC Light Heavyweight Champ), action icon Michael Jai White (The Dark Knight 2008, Black Dynamite series), Jason Mewes (Clerks 1994, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back 2001) and Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs 1992, Kill Bill 2003). In addition the film is directed by Christian Sesma (Shoot the Hero 2013) from a script written by Christian Sesma and Paul Sloan.
The story of Vigilante Diaries revolves around a team of black-ops agents turned crime-fighters, led by an elusive, brooding anti-hero of near-mythical physical and weapons skills, known only as The Vigilante (Sloan). Abandoned by governments, corporations and his handlers and with a bounty on his head, The Vigilante’s jam-packed missions of rescue and revenge take the audience from the mega-mansions and underbelly of Los Angeles to far-flung locales including Iraq, Armenia, Russia, and the UK. The film introduces a cast of colorful, dangerous, and hilarious characters with each of these missions. Mewes plays Beverly Hills documentary filmmaker Michael Hanover, who records the exploits of The Vigilante and is thrust headfirst into the middle of the story he is documenting—becoming a high-value target himself in the process. Mix in a trio of Asian femme fatales, a cadre of ruthless Armenian mobsters, and at the top, a pair of deep cover super-spies hell-bent on throwing the world into chaos – it is no wonder it is up to The Vigilante, not God, to sort them all out.
The DVD, Blu-ray™ and Digital HD will have excellent bonus materials including a “Behind The Scenes” featurette bringing fans closer to The Vigilante.
