Based on Everette Hartsoe’s self-published series Razor and Stryke, the film is a venture between Number 11 Films and Lotus Entertainment.
"I have loved Razor since its first publication,” said Cohen. “It has operatic themes, female empowerment, revenge, action, a love story, all shrouded in a delicious darkness that fits our time.”
In 2009, Arclight Films and Jeff Most Productions (The Crow) optioned the property for film, but it never made it out of development (see “Razor Film in Development”). The new film will be produced by Most and Cohen, with financing by Number 11 Films under a new sales and financing agreement with Lotus Entertainment. Budgets for films produced under the arrangement will range from $5 to $40 million.
