Looks Like Dark Action Comedy from John Michael McDonagh “War on Everyone” Will Be Getting a North American Release

(via Deadline)

If you ever saw 2014′s Calvary, you should know that this ought to be good news.

John Michael McDonagh’s follow-up to the bleak, but fantastic mystery drama Calvary will be an action comedy called War on Everyone where Michael Peña and Alexander Skarsgård play two cops that extort every criminal they can find until they might have bitten off more than they can chew. Saban Films is close to getting it released stateside after premiering in Berlin.

We haven’t seen the film or any trailers, but the premise, McDonagh, and McDonagh’s statement on this deal, “In an era of increasingly heightened tensions across America between law enforcement agencies and the communities they vow to serve and protect, it gives me great pleasure to announce that Saban Films has the guts to take on U.S. distribution of War on Everyone, a film that is totally irresponsible, deliberately inflammatory and completely lacking in any redeeming social or moral value whatsoever. Venceremos!” have us more than intrigued.
