Silat Action Drama YASMINE Is Currently In Production
On Monday, Twitchfilm forwarded news from a report at The Mail and Guardian last Thursday on the filming of a new martial arts action drama titled Yasmine. The film itself is four years in the making, and is reportedly one of the first few commercial films of its kind in its current location of the sovereign state of Brunei in up to fifty years.
Yasmine is described as a coming-of-age story about a young girl with dreams of becoming a Silat champion. The film brings 20-year old newcomer, actress Liyana Yus to the forefront as the film's lead, who spent the past year getting into her role, training in Silat for up to five hours a day.
I'm sort of reminded of director Natasha Arthy's efforts in the 2007 action drama, Fighter, in that both films sound like they compare similarly in nature. But with a different cast and crew for this type of mixed action genre, we could see a few surprises from Kalamuddin and her crew on what lies ahead as Yasmine gets closer to completion. So stick around through next year and follow up on the film's progress by clicking HERE.
