Stunt professional Joseph Le hasn’t backed down from his own directorial ambitions, having etched himself a place in history with works hailing from production banners Turtle Wave and Team Red Pro over the years. Point in fact, and having since embarked on a career trajectory that’s taken him to the sets of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend Of The Ten Rings, Daniels’ pending SXSW premiere Everything Everywhere All At Once, and 2023’s Saint Seiya: Knights Of The Zodiac, Le’s been keeping up the habit with the most recent completion of his new upcoming kung fu crime drama, Twisting Tiger.
After committing to a life of zen, a Black Shaolin Disciple with PTSD must break his vow of nonviolence and save his students from a bloodthirsty Asian gang.
The project ran a crowdsourcing campaign last year as cameras rolled and the plan is now to take the half-hour shortfilm to festivals throughout the year. Additionally, that means following the project’s official Instagram page to keep up with announcements as the weeks pass, and that also includes catching the first official trailer which is already streaming online.
Twisting Tiger is directed by Le from a script by Nick Hoang, and stars Tarell Kota Bullock, Brandon H. Lee, Smitty Chai, Brandon Soo Hoo, Dominique Smith, Devin White, David Dang and Alethea Spencer, with action sequences designed and coordinated by a team led by Le along with Armand Rabanal, and Andy and Brian Le of Martial Club.
