Evolutionary Films are about to deliver their biggest, most action-packed feature film to date in I AM VENGEANCE: RETALIATION, which will be released nationwide in the UK on 13th July 2020.

Packed to the brim with explosive action sequences, I AM VENGEANCE: RETALIATION pits Stu Bennett (fka WWE Superstar “Wade Barrett”) up against the football and acting hard man Vinnie Jones (Snatch, Gone In 60 Seconds). Bennett reprises the lead character of John Gold, previously seen in Vengeance, while Jones plays Gold’s former teammate-turned-nemesis, Sean Teague. The multiple award winning Vengeance was released in North America as I Am Vengeance by Saban Films and Lionsgate in 2018, but like all good franchises, audiences don’t need to have seen the first film to get stuck straight into the sequel!

I AM VENGEANCE: RETALIATION is written and directed by cult British action director Ross Boyask (Ten Dead Men, Vengeance) and produced by John Adams and Diane Shorthouse of Evolutionary Films.

Synopsis: Former special-forces soldier John Gold is given the opportunity to bring Sean Teague – the man who betrayed his team on their final mission in Eastern Europe several years ago – to justice. Gold would cheerfully see Teague dead, but he is convinced to help transport him to a military prison to pay for his crimes. Along the way, Gold will have to fight off Teague’s team who are attempting to extract him, as well as a sniper seemingly hell-bent on killing Teague before he can be secured.

I AM VENGEANCE: RETALIATION also stars Mark Griffin (Doctor Who, Gladiators), Jessica-Jane Stafford (The Real Hustle, Dream Team), Katrina Durden (Strike Back, Doctor Strange) and rising international action sensation Jean-Paul Ly (Nightshooters, Jailbreak).

The film was shot entirely on location in the UK by Plumcourt (Vengeance 2) under license from Evolutionary Film Productions.

As well as its nationwide release in the UK, Evolutionary Films has sold the film internationally in a number of other territories that will also release in 2020 including North America through Saban Films and Lionsgate, China, the Middle East, Pan-Asia through Fox Networks, Poland, Turkey, New Zealand, Korea and across Eastern Europe.

Evolutionary Films’ CEO, John Adams, said:

“Following on from the global success of the first ‘Vengeance’ film, we’re extremely proud and excited to be bringing this much anticipated, bigger, better and more explosive sequel to audiences around the world and especially in the UK. Ross Boyask has really pushed the bar of the British action genre with this title and the addition of Vinnie Jones to the cast as a believable nemesis to the giant 6’ 6” Stu Bennett as John Gold has really elevated the franchise to the next level. It’s also fantastic to see more female martial artists getting involved in the action too. We can’t wait for people to watch it!”
