Gendarme Wars (working title)
A beautiful detective movie with intellectual drama twists, set in pre-revolutionary St. Petersburg.
Produced by the film company IGOR ZHILKIN PRODUCTION that created the renowned World War II drama The Panfilov Division's Twenty-Eight Guardsmen.
Slogan: You can't always run from your past.
Luxury St. Petersburg of the pre-revolutionary times, the brilliant mind of the most inquisitive gendarme, action-packed adventures of the detective police and tough criminal showdowns…
All this awaits in our future movie.
Our team has set an ambitious, yet achievable task.
We want to shoot a truly beautiful Russian movie matching the standards of the world's largest studios.
Our reference point is the expectation of the foreign audience.
This will be a large-scale international project made primarily for the audience and with their best interest in mind.
Why are we sure we can do it?
We are not making this film on someone else's order or for money. We want to provide the audience with really cool content.
What to expect?
The story is set in the years of late 19th and the beginning of the 20 century. High society gives elegant balls making schemes and plots, poets of the Silver age read their poetry in cabarets, and somewhere in the underground a revolution is brewing and blood-curdling crimes are committed. The majestic capital of the Russian Empire will reveal both its splendor and poverty.
There will be lots of puzzling riddles, intellectual confrontation, sophisticated crime, unexpected story twists and dramatic turns.
The action will unfold in the fascinating atmosphere of the historical scenery of St.Petersburg, the city on the Neva river. You will appreciate the stunning views, gorgeous costumes and skillful camerawork.
Expect no hackwork, cheap plot moves or awkward humdrum.
What about the plot and format?
Feeling excited about Sherlock, Peaky Blinders, Murder on the Orient Express? Then you will definitely like our plot and characters.
The characters will be very diverse. We will not yet disclose all we’ve got – they will be featured in the trailer, and you are sure to find the ones you’ll like.
This movie will be a blend of detective and crime drama with a fine intricate love line to contrast the brutalities.
If the audience likes the characters and their adventures, the movie may quite possibly turn into a multi-series.
The movie’s slogan holds a mystery to be revealed…
What will the money be used for:
We are now at the most difficult, interesting and meaningful stage. Preparation is the cornerstone of filmmaking.
Currently, there are screening tests going on and auditions are underway. The actors will be different from the ones you on our posters, they’re not there yet.
The plan is to shoot the trailer along with the movie! The trailer is a starting point that will set further development and direction.
Our intention is not to restrict the creative process, so it’s still to be decided whether it will be a movie or a series.
A lot depends on your feedback: the more people support the project, the more interest they show now and after the trailer is released – the more encouraged we will be to make the movie a multi-part.
Support the project, rate the trailer, choose your favorite characters and decide whether to continue!
