Finnish actor, martial artist and filmmaker Ramin Sohrab is still in production with his latest feature-length debut efforts on martial arts action thriller, Layer Of Lies. In the meantime, we now have a new look at Sohrab looking like he just laid a much-needed smackdown on someone in one of the film’s fight sequences to be featured. ScreenAnarchy’s Todd Brown first posted the photo.
This particular photo comes following the first official stills and several behind-the scenes photos of the film’s production in Helsinki, Finland. Sohrab was finally able to gain approval to film the remainder of the movie in Tehran before filming in April following certain guidelines that needed to be met, which, despite a bit of stringence on violence and gore, should still allow plenty of room for Sohrab to dole out some delicious martial arts fight scenery.
Such action weighs in here for Sohrab who himself is the son of a martial arts master, and who has been in entertainment for more than a decade. Here he stars as a former fireman who returns home to his native Iran only to find himself facing an old enemy who steals what he treasures most.
Sohrab directs from own script as written along with Amirhoussein Makouei, Joe Leone and Sami Laulajainen. Sohrab is also producing through his Sonram Productions banner with Mohsen Sarafi also producing, and Ramsom & Co.’s own, actress Sonja Farling starring as well as executive producing, and with Laulajainen co-producing.
