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.
Having extensively covered Universal Pictures's famed Fast franchise, this week's latest bit of coverage has to be the closest I've come. It's primarily attributed to the forthcoming live show which kicks off in London in January and obviously with a film saga so action packed, of course it's going to need a crew of some very talented stunt performers to take to task the very feats attendees can expect.
For this, it is with great pleasure to have been able to share an auspicious chat with Adam Brashaw, someone whose work thusfar in stunts, film and television have been all but impressive. He's only appeared in The Hit List a few times having done three shortfilms (two of which I have seen), and you need only to see the results for yourself apart from his exceptional work reel just above.
Brashaw is going nine years strong in his field with multiple credits to his name, including at least one upcoming film project which he discusses a bit about later in this in…
When I first heard about The Foreigner back in the halcyon days of 2015, I was puzzled as to why anyone would agree to make it; it was a Jackie Chan movie, directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale), also starring Pierce Brosnan (Goldeneye)! This sounded like the worst idea for a movie since a Pacific Rim sequel not directed by Guillermo del Toro. Now, in defense of 2015 me, things weren't exactly bright and sunny for the three names above. Chan, still trying to hold onto his glory days, was making big budget duds like Chinese Zodiac and Skiptrace. Campbell was nearly 10 years removed from Casino Royale and was also recovering from the recent Green Lantern debacle. As for Brosnan, he was still reeling from the shockingly dull The November Man and the forgotten film Survivor. There was absolutely NO REASON for this movie to be any good, which is what made the act of seeing it such a pleasant surprise.

I still plan on catching Magnet's U.S. release of Miike Takashi's hit manga adaptation, Blade Of The Immortal next month. Folks in the U.K. still have a bit of a wait though and in all likelihood it won't stall any excitement that has already been drawn from the rave press reviews in the last six months, including this month at Sitges. Manji, a highly skilled samurai, becomes cursed with immortality after a legendary battle. Haunted by the brutal murder of his sister, Manji knows that only fighting evil will regain his soul. He promises to help a young girl named Rin avenge her parents, who were killed by a group of master swordsmen led by ruthless warrior Anotsu. The mission will change Manji in ways he could never imagine...
Arrow Films is releasing the film theatrically on December 8. The trailer looks something a bit similar from the international pitch from months earlier but still delivers the desired effect. Enjoy, and set the date!
