Penned by both Jagger sibs and co-scribe Christopher P. Taylor, the cast rounds out with a well-seasoned cast line-up that sees Bruce Davison as Nash’s dangerously secretive stepfather, Malcolm McDowell as a blind prophet and Rutger Hauer as a mysterious stranger with The Lost Boys vet Corey Feldman signaling his return to the genre, this time as a vicious cross-dressing vampire.
Taylor James makes his entry in a debut lead role headlining with actors Jackson Rathbone, Billy Zane, Rutger Hauer and actresses Lindsay Wagner and Caitlin Leahy for the film’s theatrical release on February 16, 2018.
Teasers For Oleg Stepchenko’s THE JOURNEY TO CHINA Boasts Sweeping Visuals And Big Scale Action And Adventure
There’s not a whole lot of consistency here with the current campaign for Oleg Stepchenko’s new epic, The Journey To China. The film is, however, slated for a local release from NBC Universal Russia while its biggest appeal come courtesy of its prominent editions, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan, along with the promise of grandiose signature martial arts action as teased in previous videos.
Apart from this, it’s actor Jason Flemyng’s stage here reprising his role from the 2014 film, Viy which, in also being helmed by Stepchenko, underwent its own evolution hampered by a number of issues. Flemyng returns to the role of cartographer Jonathan Green as he’s commissioned by the Czar to go on another adventure – one that ultimately lands him in China where he’ll crosspaths with Asian princesses, mystical creatures, skilled warriors and a Dragon King for good measure.
I’m sure Chan and Schwarzenegger, and Rutger Hauer will fit in somewhere in all this amid the Russian and Asian cast and we’ll learn how in due time. Meanwhile, a new teaser trailer has seemed to emerge online and until further notice, you can view it below. I’m also sharing an international teaser just beneath from last year which looks plenty crisp and worthwhile. Oh, and something about a mask…maybe? Idunno.
Check out both below!
The English traveler Jonathan Green receives from Peter the Great an order to map the Russian Far East. Once again he sets out for a long journey full of incredible adventures that will eventually lead him to China.
