Luke Wilson (3:10 to Yuma) and Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables) star in this pulse- pounding, action-packed thriller. When a team of ruthless mercenaries violently seize control of a remote resort hotel, former Special Ops soldiers attending their best friend’s wedding must rely only on their wits and training to combat the terrorists and save the hostages held for ransom.
Brendan Fehr has been a long-standing figure on both the big and small screen, with perhaps his most recognized performance being the break-out, cult television series ROSWELL. He brought humanity to the quiet and complicated alien ‘Michael Guerin,’ a role and genre that garnered him a loyal fan base. Following the series, he was cast in the long-running CBS series CSI: MIAMI and as the co lead in ABC Family’s television series SAMURAI GIRL. He later went on to star in a four- season run starring on the NBC series “The Night Shift.” He has also stood out in roles on popular series such as LONGMIRE, NIKITA, BONES and, most recently, AMC’s hit series BETTER CALL SAUL.
Fehr’s feature career began with roles in hit films like MGM’s DISTURBING BEHAVIOR with James Marsden and Katie Holmes, New Line’s FINAL DESTINATION and DreamWorks’ high-octane BIKER BOYZ. He starred with Chris Klein in the comedy THE LONG WEEKEND and has appeared in massive franchises such as X-MEN: FIRST CLASS and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. He was nominated for a Canadian Screen Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance opposite Richard Dreyfuss and Gina Carano in the independent feature DAUGHTER OF THE WOLF and was most recently seen in WANDER alongside Katheryn Winnick, Tommy Lee Jones and Aaron Eckhart.
Fehr will next be seen starring with Luke Wilson in the action feature THE BEST MAN, which Saban Films released April 21st and is currently in theaters, on demand and on digital. . He also recently wrapped THE AMITYVILLE CURSE, a modern take on the classic horror franchise.
Along with his former ROSWELL co-star Majandra Delfino, Fehr created, wrote, produced, directed and starred in the upcoming series BARON AND TOLUCA. A nod to their iconic TV characters, the show explores their complicated relationship set against a mysterious sci-fi backdrop. The pilot premiered at the ATX TV Festival to much fanfare.
