Salamat Mukhammed-Ali's DIAMOND CARTEL To Release Early Next Year In English-Speaking Territories
Award-winning actor Peter O'Toole passed away in 2013, but that's not stopping his film legacy from keeping him relevant. His final film to date, Salamat Mukhammed-Ali's The Whole World At Our Feet is gearing up for a release early next year from Cleopatra Entertainment under the new title, Diamond Cartel, according to Deadline earlier this week.
Not much is known about the plot of the Kazakh-produced Russo-English language film save for a vaguely descripted story of a series of criminal acts stemming from the impasse of a woman caught between three men who love her, including a criminal kingpin who takes her under his wing to appease his own lust for her, thus setting on an explosive and action-packed tale. Mukhammed-Ali wrote the script alomg with producer Dauren Mussa and co-scribe Magamet Bachev with a cast that joins O'Toole with an international mix of local stars and notables rounding out the cast including actor Armand Assante and actress Karlygash Mukhamedzhanova, actors Alexey Frandetti, Nurman Altayev and Serik Bimurzin with Tommy "Tiny" Lister, Michael Madsen and martial arts stars Don "The Dragon" Wilson, Olivier Gruner, Bolo Yeung and Cary Hiroyuki-Tagawa.
Cleopatra will release the film in the U.S., U.K. and Australia amid Spring followed by home releases on Blu-Ray and iTunes. Several trailers are already online, including a sales trailer from the international reps at Shoreline Entertainment who negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers, while we await an official trailer from Cleopatra before then.
