Check Out These Stills And More From Upcoming Kung Fu Short, THE CHALLENGER
Director Tran Quoc Bao‘s latest short, The Challenger is arriving today in full kung fu fashion, and I’ll be sharing it tonight with a slew of other fantastic shorts in this evening’s Hit List. In the meantime, here are some great new stills accompanied by a handful of behind-the-scenes pictures of our cast and crew.
Unlucky Stars co-star Ken Quitugua makes his appearance opposite Martial Club member Andy Le, in a story of a young martial artist who challenges his hero in an underground fight to make a name for himself. The project was filmed earlier this year before Le flew for tour with filmmaker Jacob Sebastian Malm and a team of other martial artists to perform for Giacomo Puccini’s Turandot at this year’s Bregenzer Festspiele in Europe.
It’s also being billed as a prequel to an upcoming feature film, and after screening a copy just a few hours ago, I can definitely see how that could work. Stay tuned for tonight’s Hit List for a few more of my thoughts on this lovely gem.
