0
 ILY Films confirmed that their latest action thriller, Out of Death, is set to be released on Digital Download from August 2nd and on DVD from October 4th. 

Directed by Mike Burns, who makes his feature film debut, Out of Death stars the legendary action icon Bruce Willis (Die Hard), Jaime King (Sin CityMy Bloody Valentine) and Lala Kent (Hard KillVault). 

Still grieving the untimely death of her father, photojournalist Shannon Mathers (Jamie King) spreads his ashes in the woods when she witnesses a cop (Lala Kent) shooting and killing an unarmed henchman during a drug deal. She captures the whole scene on her camera before being discovered. Shot at, scared, helpless and on the run, she races her way through the woods with no recognition of her location. 

Distracted by the violent noise of the attack, Jack Harris (Bruce Willis) a newly retired police officer who is relaxing at his cabin, saves Shannon just in time and the two narrowly escape into the woods. Not sure of whom she can trust, as more dirty cops arrive to help hunt her down, including the brutal town sheriff Hank Rivers (Michael Sirow), she decides to rely on Jack, her only real chance to fight back the corrupt police and bring it to justice.
 Director of ILY FIlms, Richard Lechartier, says “We are delighted to be releasing Out of Death in the UK. It’s a tense action-packed thriller and we are sure the audiences will love seeing Bruce Willis back to his best”.
