Silat Action Drama YASMINE Is Currently In Production
Silat has had a role to play in many martial arts action movies for some time now. But one has to admit that never has the style itself taken up such a huge spotlight than in recent years with international action star Iko Uwais paving the way with the 2009 hit, Merantau, followed by its hybrid use in the urban action thriller, Seruban Maut (a.k.a. The Raid) and its upcoming sequel. On that note, get ready for some more Silat action of a female variety!
The production is led by crew members from several parts such as Malaysia, Indonesia and Australia, with Hong Kong’s own former Jackie Chan Stunt Team member, fight choreographer Chan Man Ching. Yasmine is being directed by Siti Kamaluddin, part owner of Origin Films and Origin Artistic Management with her brother, producer Khairuddin, and will release in 2014.
