CHINA SALESMAN: Tan Bing's Tyson/Seagal Headliner Lands At Cleopatra For U.S. Release
Based on a true story, CHINA SALESMAN takes us on a dangerous and epic adventure to Africa where a Chinese engineer/salesman comes face-to-face with a corrupt competitor over the contract for the first mobile telecom technology in Africa. Local tribesman KABBAH (Mike Tyson) and mercenary LAUDER (Steven Seagal) get drawn into the conflict in a classic, brutal hand-to-hand fight while the entire country faces civil war battles.That "based on a true story" bit still peaks my curiousity seeing as how I'm alien from it. It is what it is, and if you don't mind relaxing your brain for the duration of the film until the Seagal V. Tyson match up begins, then this one should be right up your alley. China Salesman also stars Janicke Askevold, Li Ai, and Eriq Ebouaney for its limited theatrical release on April 20 prior to a VOD release on May 1. Variety reported the exclusive earlier this month.
TriCoast Worldwide represents the film internationally.
