With debut director and rising action star Alexander Nevsky (Moscow Heat, Treasure Raiders) fresh from the successful market sales of his 2014 overseas hit, Black Rose, release dates remain pending for 17 countries around the world. The film represents the next stage of Nevsky's career ascension stemming from his successes in Russia as a three-time Mr. Universe winner before establishing himself as a notable film producer, and with particular adherance to a certain goal.
The film stars Nevsky along with actress Kristanna Loken, actors Adrian Paul, Matthias Hues and Robert Davi from a script and story Nevsky wrote which centers on a cop from Moscow as he travels to Los Angeles to aid the apprehension of a brutal serial killer. Along with producer and action movie veteran Sheldon Lettich (Double Impact, The Order and Rambo 3) Black Rose is just one of several films in which he aims at shedding perceptions about Russia through international film partnerships on screen and off.
"Black Rose has an important message for me," says Nevsky "...in that Russians and Americans can work together. I wish to evoke this as best as possible as with previous and current films in order to avoid and fight 'Cold War' stereotypes".
More of those efforts will be seen in Nevsky's forthcoming appearances alongside a line-up of action heavy hitters in Mark Dacascos's directorial debut, Showdown In Manila, and their reunion thereafter in the upcoming action thriller, Maximum Impact which are now in post production. In the meantime, more info on Black Rose remains pending while Nevsky is gracing us with an exclusive look at select stills and set pics from the film.

EXCLUSIVE: In the months since its evolution, the highly anticipated action thriller, Triple Threat (formely Makeshift Squad) has been a bookmark for many an Asian cinema fan looking to see just how this particular "Asian-Expendables" kind of movie this will bring about. The prospects have been good, too, and notably in the wake of its casting additions including headliners Tiger Chen (Man Of Tai Chi), Tony Jaa (Furious Seven) and Iko Uwais (Headshot), and particularly with 87eleven's own Chad Stahelski (John Wick: Chapter 2) behind the action scenes.
I think it's safe to say you know your movie sucks when you not only screw the rights holders whose name and content you base your unsanctioned film on, but when said rights holders join the chorus of critics panning your movie from literally every angle of the internet. That is the level of achievement you have reached if your name is George Nolfi and you've directed a film called Birth Of The Dragon, long hyped to be a hopefully legendary homage to Bruce Lee, the late founder of Jeet Kune Do and patriarch of American martial arts movie fandom.
