Thr3guys recently released set photos of a newly wrapped film in Nanhai, China, called Fist Of The Dragon from New Horizon Picture Corp. and ACE Studios, which is said to be a remake of the 2000 Don “The Dragon” Wilson film, “Moving Target”.
Fist Of The Dragon is produced by longtime Hong Kong cinema actor and producer Roger Corman with action choreography by Trung Ly and Joshua Tieu, and directed by Australian film and TV veteran Antony Szeto, whose credits include American Samurai (1992), Sniper (1993), Jackie Chan Presents: Wushu (2008) and the upcoming Adrian Castro co-directed film, Hit Girls. The film stars MMA champion Josh Thomson, Ellary Porterfield, Juju Chan, Maria Tran (Hit Girls co-director), Daniel Whyte, Chris Pang, Andrew Dasz, Xin Sarith Wuku of the EMC Monkeys and Kong Kwok-keung (yes, THAT guy! ^_^) who will also be seen in another upcoming feature from B&E called Snowblade.
According to the film’s IMDb page, the plot synopsis reads the following:
Damon, an MMA fighter retires and goes to China to meet his new love, Meili. But things take an immediate turn when he inadvertently takes a package sought by an underground arms dealer. Now he must fight to save himself and his loved one.
Fist Of The Dragon is set for a U.S. release December 31, 2013. Don Wilson is set to appear in White Tiger later this year as well. Stay tuned!
