Rob Lowe, Ice-T and Burt Reynolds are in the Slovak Republic shooting Filmwerk’s action adventure “Crazy Six.”
Directed by Albert Pyun (“Cyborg,” “Adrenalin … Feel the Rush”), the film focuses on a turf war between rival drug cartels. Reynolds plays a police detective trying to crack the crime rings.
“Crazy Six” is written by Galen Yuen, who wrote and directed the “Gold Mountain” segment of Showtime’s “Riot” anthology.
The producers are Tom Karnowski and Gary Schmoeller; exec producer is Paul Rosenblum.
Imperial Entertainment is handling foreign sales for the film.
The picture is Filmwerk’s 11th production since 1994. Recent titles include the upcoming actioner “Mean Guns,” starring Christopher Lambert and Ice-T, and sci-fi actioner “Omega Doom,” starring Rutger Hauer.
