Tuesday 27th December 2016
Dog Eat Dog, released on DVD and Blu-ray by Signature Entertainment on 2nd January 2017, tells the story of three ex-cons who botch a kidnapping. They not only lose a rich payoff, but they get on the wrong side of the mob and become the city's most wanted fugitives. Vowing to stay out of prison at all costs, things get completely out of control as they go on the run from everyone.
Based on the novel by Edward Bunker, Dog Eat Dog was written by Matthew Wilder (Your Name Here) and directed by Paul Schrader (Affliction, American Gigolo, Taxi Driver). The film stars Nicolas Cage (Snowden, Leaving Las Vegas), Willem Dafoe (Justice League, Platoon) and Christopher Matthew Cook (2 Guns). The film first premiered at the 69th Cannes Film Festival to great reviews and will have its North American premiere at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival in September. At a press event in Cannes, Schrader described Dog Eat Dog as "nasty, evil and a lot of fun."
Dog Eat Dog is produced by Mark Earl Burman (South Bureau Homicide), Gary Hamilton (Lord of War), Brian Beckmann (The Courier), and David Hillary (London) and is executive produced by Jeremy Rosen (The Family), Jeff Caperton (Piranha Sharks), Barney Burman (Tropic Thunder), Ray Mansfield (And So It Goes), Shaun Redick (And So It Goes), Donald Rivers (Piranha Sharks), Michael McClung (Zombiefield), and Tim Peternel (London).
