Nathan Jones (Mad Max: Fury Road) is confirmed to be the latest addition to Ranjeet S. Marwa’s forthcoming Indonesian thriller, Blood Rush. The film is currently in pre-production with Nick Khan (Redcon-1, Invincible) setting up the action sequences initial principal photography plans in Jakarta moved from June into July.
News of the film officially broke in January with a starring cast, and a crowdfunding campaign that launched on Indiegogo. Zack Lee (Headshot, The Night Comes For Us) will make his lead acting debut playing Max, a grieving widower whose secretive new life in the occult turns out to be more than he bargained for.
The role I’m told Jones will play is that of “Small Pete”, a key henchman Max will be forced to fend off in the climatic build-up of the story. Action superstar Yayan Ruhian (The Raid franchise, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum) and Singaporean star Sunny Pang (Headshot, The Night Comes For Us) are set to appear in the film.
Jones, whose credits also include Troy, Fearless and A Flying Jatt, is a bodybuilder and former wrestler who has worked on a number of films dating back to Jackie Chan’s First Strike in 1996. He since continued to perform prominently on screen with some of the hardest-hitting action heroes to date, including Jet Li, Tony Jaa and Michael Jai White.
