Theatrical Release Date:  TBC
Home Ent. Release Date:  01 Apr 2007


An action-packed fantasy from David Webb Peoples, the Oscar-nominated writer of Blade Runner, The Unforgiven and Twelve Monkeys. In the post-apocalyptic world, the brutal sport of “Jugging”, a violent cross between football and gladiator matches is the entertainment of choice of the hardened citizens. A team of nomadic Juggers roam from village to village, piecing together a meager existence by earning money in small-time matches, lead by the rugged Sallow (Rutger Hauer - Blade Runner, Sin City), a disgraced former champion. Kidda (Joan Chen – The Last Emperor, Twin Peaks), a poor peasant girl playing in a village team, convinces Sallow to take her on the road with his team. As the team’s “quik”, Kidda soon proves her worth and soon the rag-tag team set off for one of the remaining Nine Cities with their sights on the league championships.
