Actor and martial artist Jean-Paul Ly has seen a lasting spurt of growth in his career that will soon see him proliferate in more lead roles to come. If director Haz Dulull has any say it, such a role now awaits the Jailbreak and Nightshooters star in the upcoming action sci-fi thriller, Rift, which Dulull and his team now aim to begin shooting as early as 2020.
Next to the film’s current script development amid assembling all the essentials together, at long last, the packaging now includes a proof-of-concept teaser trailer to sample the tone and vision Dulull hopes to achieve with Rift. With credits under his belt like 2036: Origin Unknown and Netflix sci-fi, The Beyond, Dulull seems readily proven and capable of handling the weight of delivering sci-fi while Ly, still ripe and his prime after starring in Jailbreak and Nightshooters, is a clear-cut natural in performing solid martial arts action.
A nihilistic police officer goes to extreme measures to protect a young boy who has the ability to tap into multi-dimensions across space and time.
That’s the idea per the story and the trailer proof above is only a sample montaging an applied tweak in its snackable presentation, so there’s no need in getting worrisome over the choppiness of the frames. The feature film itself will no less be a decent show of cinema from an ambitious duo with a growing star talent on its hands.
Dulull is producing Rift via his Haz Film banner in reunion with fellow cohort, prod Paula Crickard (Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them).
