EL GRINGO is one of the five films to be released theatrically as part of AFTER DARK ACTION and stars Scott Adkins, Christian Slater and Yvette Yates! The film features an original song from internationally renowned US band, Manowar, from their forthcoming new album!
In EL GRINGO, The Man (Scott Adkins) crosses into Mexico with a satchel of $2,000,000, cash, a bloody past, and a plan to live out his remaining days on a beach. Instead, he gets stuck waiting for a bus in El Fronteras, a sleepy desert town that's so uninviting that - forget about the ocean - he can hardly find a glass of water. Then, word of his money spreads to the El Fronteras underworld. Under sudden attack from corrupt cops, gangsters, and desperados, the Man must push back his retirement plans, lock and load, and save sleepy El Fronteras through a dizzying display of spectacular gunfights.
EL GRINGO is directed by Eduardo Rodriguez (STASH HOUSE) and written by Jonathan W Stokes.
The other movies featured in AFTER DARK ACTION are: DRAGON EYES, TRANSIT, STASH HOUSE and THE PHILLY KID. The first generation of AFTER DARK ACTION movies includes five original, adrenaline-pumping films starring international stars such as Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Peter Weller, Jim Caviezel, Cung Le and Christian Slater. AFTER DARK ACTION will showcase the movies theatrically as a commercial film festival in markets nationwide and on VOD.
