‘The brawl to end it all’
Knuckledust is a 2020 satirical action-thriller feature film about a massacre in an underground fight club with just one main suspect.
Directed by the James Kermack (Hi-Lo Joe), the British-French co-production stars Moe Dunford, Olivier Richters, Kate Dickie, Jaime Winstone and Camille Rowe.
When a special police task force kicks open the doors of elite underground fight den – Club Knuckledust, they find seven levels of hell, filled with the dead bodies of countless fighters, assassins and goons. Only one man, beaten to a pulp, barely breathing, is still alive: Hard Eight.
With a shady Government official en route to take him away, Chief Inspector Katherine Keaton and her team have ninety minutes to interrogate Hard Eight to find out if is the lone survivor or a multiple murderer.
With lies flying from everyone’s mouths and corruption becoming apparent, Keaton starts to wonder “Who is the real criminal?
Writer and director James Kermack commented: “Knuckledust is set in a hyper-stylized version of the world we live in, fusing neon dreams with bone-breaking claret soaked fights, a graphic novel come to life. We have a brilliant international cast and I’m so excited to finally share this wild universe with the world.”
Knuckledust will be released in the USA by Samuel Goldwyn Films on December 8th 2020.
