Jeremy Piven, known for his role in Entourage, has been cast in the action film Fight for Your Life. The movie will be directed by Luke Sparke, who wrote the script with Tom Evan based on his story. Sparke Films will be producing the film with producers Carmel Imrie and Carly Sparke and co-producer Alex Becconsall. Geoff Imrie and Luke Sparke will serve as executive producers.
Piven is set to star in Fight for Your Life as a soldier trapped in an unfamiliar cell. He must survive a series of deadly foes and a constantly shifting arena to see his daughter again.
Jamie Costa, known for his Star Wars fan film Kenobi, will make his professional debut in Sparke Films' crime thriller Bring Him to Me, which will also star in this project. S&R Films has acquired global rights to Fight for Your Life and intends to release it in the US while seeking foreign distribution in Cannes.
S&R's Gato Scatena stated that the movie is the thrilling and exciting type he enjoys watching in theaters or renting. He believes that the story will captivate audiences. Still, he also has confidence in Luke and his team's ability to create a high-quality and distinguished final product based on their prior experience working together.
