AFM 2014: Steven Seagal To Star In CYPHER

Well, it's official. After twelve years of languishing largely in direct-to-video territory while dabbling in reality televsion, instilling friendships with Russian leaders and American law enforcement certain political and law enforcement, actor, expert martial artist and musician Steven Seagal is ready to go back to the big screen.

Five months away from any talk of a possible third installment of Under Siege following his 1992 and 1995 films, Seagal is prepping a new $25 million dollar actioner titled Cypher with production company and international sales agent, Aldamisa International, LLC. His original script for the film will focus on the actor's lead role as a special forces operative who decides to circumvent bureaucracy by going rogue in order to hunt down terrorists being sanctioned by the government.

There is no director or other cast as of yet, but it is a breath of fresh air for fans in lieu of his modestly ceremonious villain role in the 2010 theatrical grindhouse revenge slasher, Machete. What's more, in addition to the momentum here since rejecting action star Sylvester Stallone's offers for a role in any of the Expendables films in recent years, its also an awesome chance to showcase his expertise on camera once again for the Aikido master he is, despite sporting much porkier than his skinner pony-tailed tough guy image of yesteryear.

Sure, he's obviously no Sammo Hung. But with the right director, cast and crew, Cypher could be a surprise hit. But what say you? Are you looking forward to seeing Seagal back in action?
