THE PREY: The Hunt Begins In The First Teaser For 'Jailbreak' Director's New Survival Action Thriller!

Cambodian action cinema got the ball rolling significantly with the near-infinite success of director Jimmy Henderson's martial arts comedy thriller, Jailbreak. Not to be out done with one major hit film for the country's reviving action film industry, the auteur has returned once again to go two-for-two with Chinese import, Bloody Destiny star, actor and martial artist Gu Sheng Wei for survival thriller, The Prey.

Much of the Jailbreak DNA is comprised of the crew here in addition to select cast; Henderson is joined by scribes Kai Miller and Jailbreak co-writer Michael Hodgson in penning The Prey, telling of an Chinese cop singled out by a maniacal prison warden after being raided, cast away to a remote jungle and forced into a deadly game of survival for a raft of blood thirsty thrill-seekers.

Taking a backseat behind the lens is Jailbreak star and fight choreographer Jean-Paul Ly shepherding the explosive action Henderson previously teased in our interview earlier this year as filming went underway. Rounding out the cast are Only God Forgives co-stars Vithaya Pansrigarm, Byron Bishop, Sahajak Boonthanakit and Nophand Boonyai, in addition to Jailbreak actress Dy Sonita and Henderson's longstanding film cohort, actor and martial artist Dara Our.

The film is in post-production and time will tell what kind of festival circuitry it will undergo from here on. My own guess is it might get some kind of exclusive crowd treatment later this year if not next year while its fair to refer to the success earned by Jailbreak at multiple festivals and audience screenings abroad - prior to its Netflix release - and to award-winning acclaim, no less.

We'll see what happens, but rest assured, if Jailbreak is any kind of a sign, The Prey should be a feast to endulge when it releases in 2019. The first official teaser is finally online so check it out below, or simply click here if the player doesn't load on your browser.
