Uncork’d takes on “JOHNNY GRUESOME” Director’s “GUNS OF EDEN”

Tuesday, September 27, 2022 | News

Gregory Lamberson’s GUNS OF EDEN, starring Alexandra Faye Sadeghian, has been acquired by Uncork’d Entertainment for a December release.

The film, also starring genre icon Lynn Lowry, tells of a group of friends being hunted down by an armed militia.

Megan, her partner Jeremy, and his friends Blake and Gabriella go camping for the weekend. In the woods, Megan and Jeremy witness the execution of a drug trafficker by the local sheriff and his deputies. The campers attempt to flee, but the deputies seal off the mountain, and the sheriff gets an armed militia to hunt the strangers.

“Gregory Lamberson, who gave us the cult favorite JOHNNY GRUESOME, is back with a high-energy, action-packed revenge film with a strong female protagonist,” said Keith Leopard, President Uncork’d Entertainment. “This great mix of FIRST BLOOD and ATOMIC BLONDE is a real good time.”

“I wrote the screenplay as a mashup of DELIVERANCE, FIRST BLOOD and THE WARRIORS,” adds Lamberson. “That was back in 1996, the year Alexandra was born. We like to joke that she was born to play Megan Forest. The script went into a drawer because it was too ambitious for me to tackle, with the big cast and helicopter action. But 90 percent of the story takes place outside, and during the pandemic, the most challenging script I had suddenly became the most practical one to shoot.”

Director Gregory Lamberson negotiated the deal on behalf of the film team with Keith Leopard of Uncork’d Entertainment.
