At this point, three years is a long-enough wait for a film to release, and actor and director Vincent Soberano has seen more than his share of the process and patience that cosigns with today’s film politics – particularly with his feature debut production, Blood Hunters: Rise Of The Hybrids.
In wake of this, Soberano posted a new announcement on Thursday along with an illustrious new official poster to garner attention.
“After post-production delays and redesigns, Blood Hunters: Rise of the Hybrids is now getting ready for a 2019 international release!” the announcement reads. “In the tradition of movies like Sin City and graphic novel films, this action-packed martial arts action fantasy is coming soon to theaters and digital platforms worldwide!”
Advanced from his 2016 award-winning Urban Action Showcase shortfilm and with action sequences by Jeff Centauri and Revrick Jocson, Soberano also stars in a key role in which he and an ensemble cast will get to showcase their amassed screenfighting fervor for a story centered on a special ops squad on the hunt for an Aswang queen. The goal? To extract the blood which has the power to reanimate the human dead into Aswang creatures.
The film follows as one in a slate of titles Soberano has been busy with, including the latest local release of actor and martial artist Ian Ignacio’s debut feature, The Trigonal, the current production of Circle Of Bones, and TV series Victor Magtanggol.
Blood Hunters: Rise Of The Hybrids also stars Sarah Chang and Wonder Woman co-star Mayling Ng, cinematic Hall Of Famer and actor Levy Ignacio, actor Temujin Shirzada and Makati congressman and longstanding local action star, Taekwondo champion Monsour Del Rosario.
