Mickey Rourke Joins Sikh Boxing Movie ‘Tiger’

Mickey Rourke has joined the cast of “Tiger” opposite Janel Parrish (“Pretty Little Liars”) and Prem Singh in the title role.

Principal photography has begun in Cincinnati on the drama from R3M Productions in association with Grodnik / Aloe Productions.

Alister Grierson directs from a screenplay by Michael Pugliese and Singh. Producers are Mary Aloe of Aloe Entertainment with Daniel Grodnik of Mass Hysteria Entertainment, Joey Paul Jensen and Howard Nash. Executive producers are Rocco Pugliese, Daniel Hansen, Matte Hansen, Daniel Grillo and Robert Kwartler.

The film is co-financed by R3M Productions, Omnia Entertainment and Starruner Entertainment.

Rourke is represented by CAA. Parrish is repped by Rough Diamond Management.
