The announcement just came through, The Daily Wire has acquired the North American distribution rights to the feature film Run Hide Fight.
This comes hot off the heals of Daily Wire’s Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro’s announcement, where he explains why the conservative media based company is reaching out to produce more entertainment product, such as TV and movies.
Here’s the trailer –
Run Hide Fight immerses viewers into a day in the life of Zoe Hull (played by Isabel May), a 17-year-old high school senior who is working through a complex relationship with her father (Thomas Jane) while coping with the recent loss of her mother to cancer. Zoe is just weeks shy of graduating when a quartet of nihilistic classmates siege her high school’s cafeteria to perpetrate a mass shooting. She manages to escape the building and help others flee, too, but then realizes she’s uniquely prepared to take on the shooters and save lives.
The action thriller was produced by Dallas filmmakers Dallas Sonnier and Amanda Presmyk. Sonnier who’s films include VFW, Dragged Across Concrete, Bone Tomahawk and Brawl in Cell Block 99, said –
“The Daily Wire’s policy of not publishing the names of mass shooters made it an ideal partner,”
“If this film has a political viewpoint, it’s that we should not make terrorists famous; it’s the heroes whose names we should remember.”
Sonnier also added that the cast and crew worked closely with security experts to provide an accurate depiction of an active-shooting and the kinds of dire choices that victims and their families face.
“We spent years carefully developing this movie in consultation with law enforcement veterans and shooting victims to immerse people into a realistic portrayal of what it’s like to experience one of these tragedies,”
Run Hide Fight will premiere during Daily Wire’s Backstage special on Thursday, January 14, hosted by Ben Shapiro, Co-CEO Jeremy Boreing. After the premiere, Daily Wire members can watch the movie at DailyWire.com.
