PETER WELLER AND ROBERT HAYS CO-STAR IN THE ACTION-ADVENTURE COMEDY 'FIFTY/FIFTY,' TO BE RELEASED BY CANNON PICTURES, FEB. 26

 HOLLYWOOD, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Peter Weller and Robert Hays star in the new action-adventure comedy "Fifty/Fifty" to be released theatrically by Cannon Pictures in Los Angeles and across the country on Feb. 26. Co-star Charles Martin Smith also directed. "Fifty/Fifty" is the first of 12 films to be released this year by Cannon Pictures Inc.
 Weller and Hays star as two long-time friends, and mercenaries, who initially find themselves fighting on different sides of the political fence. Smith co-stars as the CIA operative who subsequently re-unites the two when he hires them to overthrow the dictator of a small South China Sea island nation.
 "Fifty/Fifty" is an unusual film for both Weller and Hays in that it offered these two actors the opportunity to portray characters entirely unlike their well-established screen personas. Weller, uncharacteristically, exhibits a flair for comedy in this film, while Hays, known primarily for his comedic performances, plays his aggressive, hot-tempered complement. Smith too, known for his sensitive film portrayals, shows a keen talent for directing action and comedy.
 Filmed entirely on location in Malaysia, "Fifty/Fifty" was produced by Maurice Singer and Raymond Wagner. The film was written by Dennis Shyrack and Michael Butler.
