The fallout hasn’t been easy to deal with for fans since the mysterious debacle behind the stifled development of Mo’ Brothers films, Timo Tjahjanto’s The Night Comes For Us, and incidentally, Kimo Stamboel’s One Good Thing, the latter for which Redeemer star, action maestro Marko Zaror (pictured left, right of Arnold Chon) was supposed to be filming about now. Gladly however, this is not at all hampering Zaror‘s career as the film could very well possibly take off once again further somewhere down the line.
In the meantime, the Chilean martial arts action star is now keeping firmly busy in Texas ahead of the upcoming production of the new comedy, The Green Ghost, from Mutt Productions. Splinter (2006) and Filly Brown (2013) helmer Michael D. Olmos is on board to direct from a script by Holy Hell (2009) scribe Rafael Antonio Ruiz, which centers on the story of Charlie, a gringo raised in the barrio with a secret family gift and destined for a journey of self-discovery that will prepare him to battle an evil Aztec servant witch for the fate of the world. The film will reunite Zaror with Machete Kills lead actor Danny Trejo, in addition to Zambo Dende co-star, actress and martial artist Michelle Charlene Lee, along with action coordinators Arnold Chon (Arena, AWOL-72) and Freddie Poole (Rope-A-Dope 2, The Sector), accompanied by numerous action actors and stunt performers. There’s no word yet on who will play our heroic lead while filming is set to start next week in the town of Lockhart in Austin, Texas.
Zaror left 2014 on a pretty high note with forthcoming appearances in this summer’s U.S. release of Ernesto Diaz Espinoza’s revenge thriller, Redeemer, in addition to the live-action shortfilm adaptation of Latin American comic book superhero Zambo Dende, now in post-production. All I’m saying is to pay close attention to what happens next for Zaror in 2015, because I think more suprises are in store. Just going with my gut here.
Stay tuned for more on The Green Ghost!
