Vince Vaughn is suffering the consequences of becoming involved in a ruthless fight, as seen in the newly released poster for his upcoming action film, ‘Brawl in Cell Block 99.’ The poster has been unveiled by RLJE Films, which announced earlier this month that it has acquired the North American distribution rights to the crime thriller.

‘Brawl in Cell Block 99’ is the second association between the distribution company, which is a brand of RLJ Entertainment, and the drama’s writer-director, S. Craig Zahler, who previously collaborated on the 2015 critically acclaimed western, ‘Bone Tomahawk.’ RLJE Films and the filmmaker also reunited with producers Jack Heller from ASSEMBLE Media and Dallas Sonnier from Cinestate, who also worked on ‘Bone Tomahawk.’

In addition to Vaughn, ‘Brawl in Cell Block 99’ also stars Jennifer Carpenter, Marc Blucas, Udo Kier and Don Johnson. The drama will have its World Premiere at the 2017 Venice International Film Festival, and then screen at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival and Fantastic Fest. RLJE Films will then release the action movie in theaters nationwide on October 6, and On Demand and Digital HD on October 13.

In ‘Brawl in Cell Block 99,’ a former boxer named Bradley (Vaughn) loses his job as an auto mechanic, and his troubled marriage is about to end. At this crossroads in his life, he feels that he has no better option than to work for an old buddy as a drug courier. This improves his situation, until the terrible day that he finds himself in a gunfight between a group of police officers and his own ruthless allies. When the smoke clears, Bradley is badly hurt and thrown in prison, where his enemies force him to commit acts of violence that turn the place into a savage battleground.
