Ex-cons will never have a peaceful life.

In the Blayne Weaver-directed CUT TO THE CHASE, this Southern Noir thriller follows Max Chase, a man who has always been on the wrong side of the law, but his younger sister Isobel always ends up bailing him out of trouble. Until one day, she suddenly disappeared. The suspects end up being her abusive boyfriend, a District Attorney and the crime boss known as “The Man.” Fearing for his life and his sister, Max re-renters the dark crime world and being pursued by The Man’s enforcer. The only ally is with a manipulative female criminal, who apparently is also on the run from The Man.

The film also stars Weaver in the lead role. He is supported by Lance Henriksen, Lyndie Greenwood and Erin Cahill.

The indie thriller has received numerous awards in the film festival circuit. CUT TO THE CHASE will open theatrically in limited markets on February 28 and will be available nationwide on VOD/Digital on March 7. The DVD will be released later in August.
