It’s a rousing time for actor Yoshi Sudarso who will be getting a little screentime of his own for the Frontières Proof Of Concept showcase at Cannes for Bao Tran’s kung fu feature, The Paper Tigers. In the meantime, his biggest score by far in his career is set to arrive later this year in a debut role next to actor Ario Bayu for period Western actioner, Buffalo Boys, from debut director Mike Wiluan.
Sudarso, best known for his role in hit series, Power Rangers: Dino Charge, and Bayu who also stars in Java Heat with Mickey Rourke, lead the narrative for Wiluan’s new film as two brothers on a mission of vengeance for their father’s death against corrupt Dutch colonialists in the 1800s. Wiluan penned the script along with screenwriter Raymond Lee with the addition of action sequences to boot courtesy of Kazu Patrick Tang of Hard Target 2 fame.
A release date hasn’t been set just yet while Screenplay Infinite is more than willing, as of Friday, to oblige moviegoing netizens with a searing look at the official trailer following last month’s teaser.
