Yari Film Group Making Kerosene Cowboys


Yari Film Group will finance, co-produce and handle North American distribution for the fighter pilot actioner Kerosene Cowboys, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Svarog-Afterburner Films’ Dave Riggs and Nickolai Suslov and YFG CEO Bob Yari will produce the Top Gun-style feature, centering on tough pilots in an elite Naval attack squadron. The film will be shot in the U.S. and Russia, using the U.S. Navy Fighter Weapons School for the first time in two decades and Russian air force aircraft.

First-timer Adam Prince wrote the script based on based on Randy Arrington’s 2007 “Kerosene Cowboys: Manning the Spare” and a treatment by Riggs and Suslov.
