Pell James, Marc Senter added to Chris Sivertson drama

Chris Sivertson’s indie drama “Brawler” has been cast with Pell James, Marc Senter, Nathan Grubbs, Michael Bowen and Bryan Batt.

Production began Saturday in New Orleans with Sivertson directing from his own script and Grubbs and Senter producing.

“Brawler” centers on two brothers competing in an underground circuit of New Orleans riverboat brawls and the woman that comes between them, based on a story Grubbs heard while growing up. Grubbs raised the money in his hometown of New Orleans to shoot the film and will square off against Senter, who is a black belt in karate.

Sivertson’s credits include “I Know Who Killed Me.”

James will next be seen in Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life.” Grubbs’ credits include “Privateer.”
