New Set Photos From A CERTAIN JUSTICE Are Now Online
New set photos are emerging from the set of the set of martial arts action star Cung Le's latest film, A Certain Justice, which is set for a 2014 release. The film is written and directed by James Coyne, and co-directed by Giorgio Serafini, who credits also include the 2010 Wesley Snipes actioner, Game Of Death, and the upcoming action picture, Blood Of Redemption.
Cung Le directed the action sequences along with fight choreographer and co-star Scott Sheeley and guest fight choreographer Jimmy Lui. Le also served as one of the film's producers along with co-star, legendary action hero Dolph Lundgren. Actress Brianna Evigan, and actors Vinnie Jones, Giannin Capaldi, James C. Burns and Jonathan Kowalsky also round out the cast.
Hype around the film originally began in 2009 in an exclusive interview hosted by Rama's Screen where Le, in promotion of the sci-fi horror, Pandorum, and the live-action adaptation of the Namco fighting game, Tekken. Describing it as a cross between Rambo: First Blood and No Country For Old Men, Le discussed his excitement for the project, also saying "...Next to PANDORUM, it’s a one-two punch, it’s either CERTAIN JUSTICE or PANDORUM that caught my attention when I read it, I could not put the script down, I was like ‘I need to do this’. The script was written for me, my manager manages the writer, I can’t wait til that project gets going.".
Check out the photos available below the jump, and stay tuned for a synopsis, trailers and release dates. And feel free to follow Cung Le on Facebook, Twitter and IMDb to keep up with the film.
Director Kim Jee-Woon's 2005 action drama, A Bittersweet Life, certainly lended one of the most brutal and memorable titles Korean cinema had to offer near the start of the millenium with actor Lee Byung-Hun front and center. Fast forward to present day where Twentieth Century Fox is poised to advance a remake effort with the promise of actor Michael B. Jordan leading the cast.
Jennifer Yuh, Nelson (Kung Fu Panda 2, Kung Fu Panda 3) is being tapped to direct the remake with the goal of steering it as potential franchise starter with Jordan playing a high-level mob enforcer who becomes romantically embroiled in a deadly cover-up with his boss's young mistress. 21 Laps's own Shawn Levy, Dan Levine and Dan Cohen are producing in association with CJ Entertainment with Jason Young overseeing for Fox.
Jordan is next slated to appear in the February 16, 2018 release of Creed helmer Ryan Coogler's Marvel adaptation, Black Panther, opposite lead star Chadwick Boseman. (Deadlin…
The past few years have been a vigorous tug-and-pull over just how long it would be before actor and martial artist Iko Uwais would see a more principal role than in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Landing a more definitive English speaking line in this year's thriller, Headshot, was just another layer on the waiting cake added until more time passed until now, with actor Frank Grillo front and center with the cast that outlines the first of possible prospects to come between two actors who've gotten their start in different markets.
I speak of prospects with a certain action crime saga remake in mind, but in the good name of staying on topic, let's bring things back into focus. For this, we now turn to the long-awaited first official teaser trailer for the new sci-fi thriller, Beyond Skyline from writer/producer/director Liam O'Donnell who served on the first film from directing duo Colin and Greg Strause back in 2010.
