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.
Production I.G.'s longstanding Blood saga has been a mainstay in manga and on film and TV, save for Chris Nahon's own less-than-stellar effort nearly a decade ago. Since then, the animated franchise has seen its own evolution despite bearing some controversy which forbade it in both Japan and even China despite positive reviews.
That legacy extends further to Blood-C: The Last Dark, as its 2015 live-action stageplay, Blood-C: The Last Mind from director Shutaro Oku who has since moved on to a live-action setting for the upcoming spin-off, Asura Girl: Blood-C from Production I.G. and all-female animation group, CLAMP. Fujisaki Junichi, whose shared credits with the entirety of the Blood franchise date back to the 2000 Playstation game, wrote the script which will expand on the principal villain, Fumito, from the 2011 Blood-C anime now in a prequel setting. The story takes place in prewar-period Japan under the military government. The bloody battle between the tyrannical Specia…
The past three years saw plenty of fluctuating news and updates surrounding The Expendables, The ExpendaBelles and as recently as this month, a forthcoming reboot of Hellboy. All three are housed at Millenium Films for which its founder recently sold 51% of his stake in the company for $100 million dollars, and this week, Avi Lerner sat down with THR to discuss the nature of his sale with respect to his career and the current film climate and landscape in which a company like Netflix has dominated in snatching up independent titles at the film markets, among other things.
Going forward in the interview, Lerner also revived talk of the aforementioned titles; A fourth film in the Expendables franchise had been long in the works following the intial trilogy which gave moviegoers The Expendables 3 in 2014. In March, Stallone left the franchise altogether as he did with Rambo last year, and has since moved on to other projects, including a second installment and likely third for the Escap…
Whatever likes and shares that followed online notwithstanding, some folks on the internet lost their minds when they learned an Indian action star was going to reprise the lead role in a Rambo remake. It's not a bad move seeing as how actor and martial artist Tiger Shroff (Heropanti, Baaghi) has earned himself some notable starpower in the last few years.
Alas, he'll be the one playing the title role as inspired by Ted Kotchoff's 1982 adaptation of David Morrell's 1977 novel which helped catapult a younger Sylvester Stallone into Hollywood stardom. As for whether Shroff looks the part or not, he took some time over the weekend to share a preliminary poster for the film which, for what it's worth, answers the question for folks who are curious. The Indian Rambo will follow the last surviving member of an elite covert unit of the Indian Armed Forces who returns home to discover a war waging in his own land. Forced into the dangerous jungles and frozen mountains of t…
