06 Nov The Hollywood Reporter: Manny Perez’s ‘La Soga 3: Vengeance’ Lands at Freestyle Digital Media (Exclusive)
Byron Allen’s Freestyle Digital Media has picked up La Soga 3: Vengeance, starring Manny Perez as a justice-seeking hitman.
Freestyle plans a digital release to start Dec. 12, 2023, for the Spanish-language crime-focused action thriller that Perez directs and which also stars Ana LaPointe and Felix German as part of a mostly Latino ensemble cast.
“Nowadays, releasing a film is not as easy as people think, so working with the team at Freestyle Digital Media was a blessing, and I’m looking forward to building a working relationship for future projects as well,” Perez said in a statement on Monday.
La Soga 3: Vengeance has Perez playing La Soga, the Dominican Republic’s most dangerous hitman who returns home to fight corruption, only to be targeted by ruthless assassins. He finds himself in a deadly ambush and, to succeed amid the chaos, La Soga joins with his cousin Sixto to unravel a sinister web of deceit and treachery.
La Soga’s investigation brings him to his archenemy Senator Fernando Florentino, a corrupt politician who put a hit out on him and is responsible for his dark road to revenge. What La Soga didn’t expect was inheriting a young protege with a talent beyond his own.
Written, directed and produced by Perez, La Soga 3: Vengeance was co-produced by Cristian Mojica, with Ricky Gluski, Nelva Pelaez, Otto Santos and Daniel Veras associate producing. Seth Needle is an executive producer.
The ensemble cast includes Wilson Ureña, Jason Andors and Anderson Garcia. The character of La Soga as a hired killer was first introduced in the 2009 film La Soga, with Perez writing the screenplay and having performed the titular role.
Clay Epstein’s Film Mode Entertainment started shopping Vengeance to international buyers earlier this year at Cannes. Freestyle Digital Media negotiated the deal for La Soga 3: Vengeance with Seth Needle acting for the filmmakers.
