Joe Manganiello To Star In ‘Archenemy’ From Writer Director Adam Egypt Mortimer

 Joe Manganiello (Rampage, Magic Mike, “True Blood”) is set to star as dubious superhero Max Fist in the epic action-adventure Archenemy, written and directed by Adam Egypt Mortimer (Daniel Isn’t Real) from a story by Mortimer and Lucas Passmore and produced by SpectreVision (Mandy, Daniel Isn’t Real), for which Voltage Pictures will handle international sales, it was announced today by President and COO Jonathan Deckter.

 

SpectreVision’s Daniel Noah, Lisa Whalen and Elijah Wood are producing with Stacy Jorgensen Executive Producing alongside Voltage Pictures’ Babacar Diene (Ava, Fathers & Daughters).  Kim Sherman is also producing.  Voltage will present the title to buyers at the upcoming American Film Market.

 

Archenemy is the story of Max Fist, who claims to be a hero from another dimension who fell through time and space to earth, where he has no powers. No one believes his stories except for a local teen named Hamster. Together, they take to the streets to wipe out the local drug syndicate and its vicious crime boss known as The Manager.

 

Archenemy is about finding the heroes amongst us, and within us, something that I think everyone can relate to in today’s world,” said Deckter. “We’re thrilled to add this fun, action packed superhero to our diverse lineup and are excited to work with Adam and SpectreVision on our second film to bring this dynamic duo to the streets, and to our partners around the world.”

 

"We're excited to reteam with Adam and Voltage to bring another unique genre vision to the screen.  We've long wanted to work with Joe, and Archenemy is the perfect opportunity to do so," says Company X / SpectreVision CEO Lisa Whalen.

 

Manganiello is repped by ICM Partners, Anonymous Content and Greenspan Young.  Adam Egypt is repped by ICM Partners and 3 Arts Entertainment.
