Nicolas Chartier’s Voltage Pictures has strengthened its AFM war chest with international rights to the action title starring Ryan Kwanten, Freida Pinto and Mickey Rourke.

Blunt Force Trauma centres on a deadly network of underground gunfights in South America called The Game.

Kwanten will play a young man and Pinto a vengeful woman who meet on their quest to locate the clandestine scene’s elusive champion.

Ken Sanzel of Numb3rs and The Replacement Killers fame wrote and directs Blunt Force Trauma, while Eric Brenner and Gary Preisler are the producers and hold US rights.
