High Octane Pictures is preparing The City Of Gold for wide release this month on VOD. “The City of Gold” was how explorers described the rumored city of El Dorado, which they hoped to find. They never found any proof of such a place, which left movies to let their imaginations run wild.
This time, a media tycoon believes he’s found the location of El Dorado and hires a crew to help him search the Amazon for it. As it becomes clear he’s willing to do anything to discover (and probably plunder) the city, his cohorts must come up with a plan to stop him.
The City of Gold stars Vernon Wells (The Road Warrior, Commando, InnerSpace), Christopher Atkins (The Blue Lagoon, The Pirate Movie), Branscombe Richmond (“Chicago Med”), John Charles Meyer (Avenged), Adrienne Whitney Papp (“The Resident”), Riley Dandy (Double Play), Robbie Allen (Hellblazer) and Jennifer Rikert Wolski (Escape Artist). It was written by Ronald A.Blum and directed by Harry Locke IV.
High Octane is billing The City of Gold as “in the tradition of Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider.” Let’s hope they’re not referring to the latest Tomb Raider movie. The flick will become available on VOD tomorrow, December 4 and on DVD January 1, 2019.
An anguished media magnate, Jonathan Davenport, accompanies his estranged lover to the Peruvian Amazon in pursuit of a reclusive artist living in rebel occupation. Despite their philanthropic intentions, the mission proves to be the harbinger of something dark and ominous rooted deep within Jonathan.
