Get A Behind-The-Scenes Look At The Action In Daniel Zirilli’s THE ASIAN CONNECTION
Crossing Point helmer Daniel Zirilli is currently onto furthering film prospects with the likes of Chilean action star Marko Zaror for a tentatively untitled project in Bangkok this November. It’s one that marks but one of several credits to the director having familiarized himself with Asia’s various locals, namely in and around Thailand, and aptly enough for the production schedule back in 2015 with his recent crime thriller, The Asian Connection.
Produced by Damiano Tucci (Shark Lake), actor John Edward Lee (Terminator: Genysis) leads the cast along with actress Pim Bubear (The Man With The Iron Fists 2) for the story of two American robbers, Jack and Sam, committing a spate of heists when one of their jobs lands them in danger after learning they’ve stolen from a local crime boss. eOne has since released the film with much of the artwork featuring actor Steven Seagal front and center who plays the aforementioned villain and while the film has its fair share of criticisms, the hardcore Seagal completists will likely find themselves keen on checking this one out on their own time.
For now though, Zirilli has taken to Film Combat Syndicate to share an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film shot by documentarian Lee Mason (Once Upon A Time In Vietnam a.k.a. Lua Phat) with appearances by Only God Forgives co-stars Byron Gibson and Sahajak Boonthanakit, along with Time Rush star Dean Alexandrou. Michael Jai White cameos in the film as well, though neither he nor Seagal are in the following video which also contains some spoilers, so mind the footage while viewing, and enjoy!
