Amy Johnston Lands The Lead In LADY BLOODFIGHT


It seems the production of the all-female underground martial arts action thriller, Lady Bloodsport, has undergone some changes in the past year since training began for the actresses slated to appear in it at the time. This week, the word now from the official Facebook page for Bey Logan's production banner, B&E Productions states the film's latest rebranding as Lady Bloodfight. And while further casting details will need some clarity, the film has officially aligned itself with the screenfighting stunt prowess of Raze co-star, actress Amy Johnston, who can currently be seen in Epic Rival's first trailer for the fantasy martial arts action series, Clandestine.

As per the benefits of being a viral internet sensation, the actress has gained a ton of notoriety from a simple demo test fight shot at a gym in California several years ago by the original creators of Clandestine over at Thousand Pounds Action Company which you can check out after the jump. And since then, Johnston has accordingly proven herself to be a valued professional in her field, with the ability to showcase her acting chops as equally strong a suit as her skillset in electrifying martial arts choreography and dynamic stuntwork.


Without a doubt, the trend continues as Lady Bloodfight's new central leading lady will prove to be nothing short of remarkable for the folks over at B&E. Check out the brand new synopsis below.

SYNOPSIS:
Jane is a beautiful but troubled American girl backpacking through Japan, when her raw street fighting skills draw the attention of Oshima, Japanese karate champion, who recruits and trains her to fight in the vicious, all-female, underground martial arts tournament known as "The Kumite". 
After months of rigorous preparation, Jane is ready to face off against the deadliest female fighters in the world, including Ling, the Chinese apprentice of Oshima's nemesis. But other nefarious forces lie in the shadows, and Jane and Ling will have to unite on a journey that will take them from the gritty underworld of Hong Kong to the glitz of Macao, before deciding who really is the best female fighter on the planet.
Lady Bloodfight is also set to amplify its martial arts action muscle with the aid of helmer Chris Nahon, best known for his 2001 directorial debut Jet Li blockbuster starrer, Kiss Of The Dragon, and the 2009 live action delivery of Blood: The Last Vampire.Temur Mamisashvili (Blooming Flowers, Vor, Covert Affairs) is handling the action scenes. The film is expected to launch with an announcement to be made soon at the European Film Market with more details to come.

Fans can also expect to see Johnston in Robot Underdog's upcoming Dragon Ball Z fan film as "Android 18", in addition to co-starring in Dennis Ruel's directorial debut, Unlucky Stars, as well as her stunt double credits for Scarlett Johansson's character, Black Widow in Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier in theaters beginning April 4, 2014.
