Triple Threat (2019) -- S: Tony Jaa, Tiger Chen, Iko Uwais, Michael Jai White

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hea...-threat-986250

Ong Bak star Tony Jaa, The Raid breakout Iko Uwais and Tiger Chen (Man of Tai Chi) will square off against Scott Adkins (Zero Dark Thirty), UFC middleweight champ Michael Bisping and action movie vet Michael Jai White in Triple Threat.

Jesse Johnson is directing the feature, which hails from Arclight Films. Mike Selby of SC Films International and Arclight’s Mike Gabrawy and Gary Hamilton are producing. Chen also is producing, as are Elliot Tong and Ying Ye.

The action kicks off after a billionaire's daughter becomes the target of a mercenary cartel. Her only protection are two down-on-their-luck fighters and a third who has vowed revenge against the others.

Asian actors Jaa, Uwais and Chen are the protagonists, while American thespians Adkins, Bisping and White are the villains. Joey O’Bryan wrote the script.


The project was coming together last year but fell apart. It was reconstituted with a new director, script and setting (Mexico was on the books for the previous version), as well as a new set of bad guys. Also new is the financier: Shanghai Aurora Alliance is now bankrolling the film.

“I cannot tell you how excited I am about this film, it is unique,” Jaa said Tuesday in a statement. “I don’t think that anyone has seen a cast like this in a generation.”

Gersh, which reps all the actors in its action department, packaged the film, which is eyeing an April production start in Bangkok.

Adkins was last seen fighting Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel's Doctor Strange, while Bisping appeared in xXx: Return of Xander Cage and will be seen in an upcoming episode of Twin Peaks. White starred in 1997's Spawn and appeared in The Dark Knight. He also played the Bronze Tiger on The CW’s Arrow.

In addition to being repped by Gersh, Jaa is repped by Mike Selby Management, Link Entertainment and Bloom Hergott while Uwais is also with Management 360 and Ricky Siahaan Management. Adkins is additionally repped by Joe Hutton at BWA Agency, Link Entertainment and Bloom/Hergott. Bisping is also repped by Paradigm Sports Management and Bloom/Hergott, and White is additionally repped by Link Entertainment.

The long awaited Triple Threat has just started shooting in Thailand.

The film tells of a billionaires daughter on the run from a murderous cartel. She enlists three martial artists to protect her and seek revenge on the cartel… The three martial arts heroes are Ong Bak hero Tony Jaa – most recently seen in XXX: The Return of Xander Cage – former Yuen Woo-ping protege and star of Man of Tai Chi Tiger Chen, and Indonesian martial arts sensation Iko Uwais (star of The Raid series). Pitted against them are the diabolical trinity of Scott Adkins (Undisputed & Ninja franchise), Black Dynamite himself Michael Jai White and UFC legend Michael Bisping (Strike Back, XXX: Return of Xander Cage). Arrow‘s Celina Jade (soon to be seen in Wolf Warrior 2), Jeeja Yanin (Chocolate, Half Worlds S2) and Pitfighter‘s Dominique Vandenberg round out the cast.

Adkins, Jaa, Chen, Uwais and White?

I'm so in and have been since I saw Jaa first post that picture on Facebook!

Asian Expendables. With a white guy for comedy relief.

I'm glad to see Jaa, Chen, and Uwais as the protagonists in this sort of thing. Pretty damn good cast with those three guys so i'm looking forward to their action scenes.

Asian actors Jaa, Uwais and Chen are the protagonists, while American thespians Adkins, Bisping and White are the villains. Joey O’Bryan wrote the script.
Man, who wrote that article? Bisping and Adkins are English. And calling them thespians, while technically correct, sounds like a joke since it's a usually a term reserved for great actors.

All that being said, I'd watch this.

I was curious as to what the director worked on before and found his demo real...meh.

https://www.stage32.com/media/1308004310063261645

I still want to watch this movie, though. Maybe, with the martial arts talents and Chad Stahelski involved I might just see some good choreography.

They could get Isaac Florentine to direct this? I am sure this will never be a big budget theaterical release, but why not get the best straight to VOD director available?

The title makes me think Jaa, White and Atkins are going to break into song and dance (while Uwais mows them down).

Definitely in

Tony Jaa has had such a mismanaged career, wasted so much of his prime on the sidelines

Jaa will be crying because his moves won't be a smoove as Uwais and White. I just chuckle at anything Atkins does. No way in hell will he ever be taken seriously.

1st teaser 15 seconds



http://deadline.com/2017/07/triple-t...sa-1202131496/

Well Go USA acquired the U.S. rights. Will be released in theatres in early 2018

Can a mod change the thread date to 2018?

Story also says that the cast is appearing at Comic Con this weekend and will show footage from the movie.

Meh. Trailer didn't do much for me, but there are worse ways to kill a couple hours on a weekend.

Still no release date yet even though this movie was filmed 2 years ago.

Thanks. Someone just replied to my Facebook comment saying March 22, 2019.

Nice. Hopefully it's playing somewhere near me. I know these Well Go limited releases are far and few.

dex14, can you change the year to 2019 now?

Well Go usually plays their films at the AMC Metreon in San Francisco, CA around release. I remember seeing The Villainess (2017) there.

Will probably check this out based on Cast alone.
