Taiwanese filmmaker Xu Hong Hui‘s latest action thriller, Ameera, is hitting the cinemas in China on April 4, 2014, centered on a female agent who sets out to prevent a terrorist attack after failing her last mission. While there doesn’t seem to be much else to the premise, we do get a batch of stills and a fresh new trailer below which may or may not be self-descriptive depending on your knowledge of the film itself. We also get a glimpse of actress Patricia Hu back on the big screen with international action actor and co-star of The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions and Well Go USA’s latest release of Special ID, Collin Chou, headlining the film in classic kicking action since their late 2013 appearance in Angel Warriors.
An update over at Chinesemov was unveiled by some viral movement on Facebook earlier today showing the cast listing for director Jacky Wu Wing‘s upcoming commando action thriller, Wolf War. The film was titled Warg and Wolf in previous reports with behind the scenes footage showing Wu and actor Scott Adkins on set filming in camouflage uniforms over late summer in China.
Interestingly enough is that the cast listing also includes actress Yu Nan, who most recently made the spotlight in the all-star cast the 2012 blockbuster, The Expendables 2, and is also set to appear in Fu Huayang’s exotic all-female jungle action thriller, Angel Warriors this November. In addition, the film has also apparently cast actor Vincent Zhao, best known for his work in such action titles as The Blacksheep Affair (a.k.a. Another Meltdown), Wu Dang and Yuen Woo-Ping’s martial arts adventure, True Legend. Zhao is also less preferably known for the headlines he made in the past couple of years when he bumped heads with actor Donnie Yen over script changes for director Clarence Fok’s recently released Special ID prior to him leaving the cast and enduring an ongoing media circus that followed.
At any rate though, it’s good to see Zhao working again. And even moreso, with two of the action film industry’s most popular leading men, and a female actress with the talent to hold her own in an action flick. Now let’s just hope this production brings better prospects for this particularly intriguing upcoming war thriller when it arrives in 2014.
Actress and Pay Back co-star Deng Ziyi is also set to appear in the film. I suppose we will learn more about Wolf War in the weeks and months ahead, so stay tuned as the updates continue trickling through.
Film Smash posted two new trailers and several new posters this week for the upcoming jungle action adventure from director Fu Huayang titled Angel Warriors (a.k.a. Jagged Angels).
