RLJE Films acquires Archenemy – will release it this December!

RLJE Films, a business unit of AMC Networks, has acquired the North American rights to the action/thriller, ARCHENEMY, ahead of its world premiere at this year’s Beyond Fest.  The film marks the third collaboration between RLJE Films and SpectreVision, after Mandy and Color Out of Space.  ARCHENEMY will be released in Theaters, On Demand and Digital on December 11, 2020.

Written and directed by Adam Egypt Mortimer (Daniel Isn’t Real) from a story by Mortimer and Lucas Passmore (No Good Heroes), the film stars Joe Manganiello (“True Blood”), Skylan Brooks (“Empire”), Zolee Griggs (“W-Tang: An American Saga”), Paul Scheer (“Black Monday”), Amy Seimetz (Pet Semetary) and Glenn Howerton (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”).

“We’re excited to be back in business with SpectreVision after the incredibly successful releases of Mandy and Color Out of Space,” said RLJE Films Chief Acquisitions Officer Mark Ward. “With Joe Manganiello’s strong performance and Adam Egypt Mortimer’s innovative direction, we couldn’t have asked for a better dream team to showcase ARCHENEMY at Beyond Fest and in theaters and various platforms in December.”

In ARCHENEMY, Max Fist (Manganiello) 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 was produced by SpectreVision’s Daniel Noah, Lisa Whalen and Elijah Wood along with Kim Sherman, Adam Egypt Mortimer, Joe Manganiello and Nick Manganiello. Ward and Jess DeLeo from RLJE Films negotiated the deal with SpectreVision on behalf of the filmmakers.
