Stephen Dorff takes the lead role in the upcoming MMA drama Embattled, whose UK release details have now been confirmed.

Directed  by Nick Sarkisov and written by David McKenna, the film co-stars Darren Mann and Elizabeth Reaser. The ensemble features a collection of UFC stars as well, and the film is about an MMA champion who finds himself in the ring against his 18-year old son.

The film is being released by Universal in the UK, and a July 5th 2021 date has been earmarked. It’ll be landing directly on digital download services.

We’ve got a trailer and an official synopsis for the film too, so we’ll leave you with those. Trailer first…

And the synopsis reads…

Raised by an abusive father, Cash (Stephen Dorff) channels his aggression to become a World Champion MMA fighter. Now accustomed to wealth, adulation and global popularity, he faces a new challenge when his second son is born with Williams Syndrome. But this time, rather than stand and fight, he runs. 

While Cash continues to make his fortune in the ring, his eldest son Jett (Darren Mann) becomes the caregiver to his younger brother Quinn (Colin McKenna). When Jett decides to follow his father’s fighting footsteps and take to the fight game, he faces his past head on, embarking on a course inevitably pitting father versus son in a battle which, no matter the outcome, neither can win.

More as we hear it.
