In lords of war, Orlov learns he has a son, Anton, who is trying to fix his father’s mistakes rather than stop them as he launches a mercenary army to fight the American conflicts in the Middle East.

The sequel will be shot in Fall 2023, with FilmNation Entertainment representing the international sales rights from the Cannes Film Festival. CAA Media Finance will handle domestic rights.
