I can’t iterate enough how important it is that we don’t fall asleep on Jon Foo. The martial arts wunderkind who appeared in hits like House Of Fury, Tom Yum Goong and Universal Soldier: Regeneration is back once again with Timothy Woodward Jr. (4Got10, Weaponized) for western thriller, The Outsider, and the official trailer is here following its acquisition by Cinedigm a few days ago.
In search of the American dream, a railroad worker (Jon Foo) finds himself on the wrong side of a lawless frontier. As the Marshall attempts to control his corrupt town, tragedy strikes sending the railroad worker on a path of retaliation.
Rounding out the cast of principles are Trace Adkins who plays the Marshall, and actors Sean Patrick Flanery and Danny Trejo.
Obviously The Outsider isn’t exactly the most original title but the trailer looks as good as it does in teasing the kind of gritty, revenge tone it’s going for. Moreover though, with stars like Scott Adkins, Tiger Chen, Iko Uwais, Wu Jing, Daniel Wu and Warrior’s Andrew Koji keeping the genre fresh, it’s great to see the former Rush Hour TV star still up there among the cadre of deserving talents.
The Outsider will get a limited theatrical, VOD and digital rollout starting June 14.
