'Sharpshooter' Will Premiere in HD Slated Under the 'Spike Guy Movies' Umbrella

NEW YORK, Jan. 8 -- James Remar ("Dexter") and Mario Van Peebles ("Ali") star in the Spike original movie, "Sharpshooter," premiering on Sunday, January 27 from 10 p.m. -- 12 midnight (ET/PT) on Spike TV. "Sharpshooter" premieres in HD and is slated under the "Spike Guy Movies" umbrella that will air throughout 2008.

"Sharpshooter" is a tense, explosive, action film that centers on Dillon (Remar), a government-hired assassin who agrees to take on one last job, only to learn he has been set up. Dillon is one of the best snipers in the Special Ops forces, but lately all he wants is to retire and live a peaceful life. Upon returning from what he believes is his last mission, his government contact, Flick (Van Peebles), pleads with him to take on one last mission: take down a nuclear arms deal. When the operation goes awry, Dillon suddenly finds the tables have turned and he has now become the hunted. While dangerous arms dealers and rogue government forces scramble to track him down, he's caught in a race to find out who has set him up and why.

"We are pleased to be working with RHI Entertainment to bring great action films to Spike TV," said Bill McGoldrick, vice president of development, Spike TV. "With strong performances by James Remar and Mario Van Peebles, this explosive thriller delivers what our audience craves."

RHI Entertainment presents an Alpine Medien Production in association with Larry Levinson Productions. "Sharpshooter" is directed by Armand Mastrioanni, written by Steven H. Berman and produced by Kyle Clark and James Wilberger. Nick Lombardo, Kevin Bocarde and Michael Moran serve as co-executive producers. Robert Halmi, Jr. and Larry Levinson serve as executive producers.

Spike TV is available in 96.1 million homes and is a division of MTV Networks. A unit of Viacom (NYSE: VIA, VIA.B), MTV Networks is one of the world's leading creators of programming and content across all media platforms.
