Hit-List Heads’ Up: Lewis Tan’s BAD FISH, Posters For NIGHT WATCH And DYING IS EASY, Samuels’ HK MEMOIR, OLD HABITS For Sande
Actor Lewis Tan’s latest undertaking now comes in shortform with upcoming shortfilm project, Bad Fish. The actor recently wrapped principal photography on his latest project and posted several behind-the-scenes photos from the set taken by Ben Tan and Kat Holt.
There isn’t much info running out and about until further notice so it’ll be interesting to see what Tan and his cast have in store. Tan recently wrapped Simon McQuoid’s Mortal Kombat which bows April 16, 2021 in theaters, IMAX, and on HBO Max.
The good folks at Bat In The Sun have since premiered the first poster for upcoming Batman fan film project, Dying Is Easy. Actor Kevin Porter dons the cape and cowl once again for the online Batfandom opposite Aaron Schoenke who also wrote and directed the pic with Sean Schoenke, and with Michael Madsen also starring.
Just next to is the latest poster for Winnipeg’s own Kyle Wong-directed action short, Nightwatch, soon to have its own exclusive cast and crew premiere online before releasing at a date TBA. The indie project is the latest from Wong who, in full disclosure, is an industry stunt performer and a contributing writer to this site as of late.
Check out both posters below!
Hong Kong cinema legend and filmmaker Robert Samuels (Red Wolf, Yes Auntie!) is currently in production with HK Memoir, with a teaser now running online for the new doc series. Samuels is producing the project with fellow R4 Films LLC partner Robert Jefferson.
Last and far from least comes the first trailer for Old Habits, the latest shortform incarnation of a story from the mind of author and screenwriter Ben Trebilcook, and director Brian Trainor (Cops And Monsters, upcoming RoboCop documentary RoboDoc)
Based on Trebilcook’s novel of the same name, as well as in part Trebilcook’s “Old Habits Die Hard” screenplay and the 2007 TV show McClane: Die Hard 24/7, which he developed with Fox UK’s FX Channel, Old Habits stars Jeremy Sande and sees NYPD rookie Brady experience every horrific crime imaginable during the New York City blackout of 1977, then a retired detective being invited to Tokyo only to face the yakuza.
An online release date remains pending.
