The implementation of stunt players to the profession of forefront acting and even starring in narrative features continues to reap prosperity in some instances. U.K.-based Jean-Paul Ly’s case certainly makes note of this having graced market floors and festival audiences with the release of his acting debut in Jimmy Henderson’s Jailbreak – a high mark for Cambodian cinema as well as for Ly’s own career traction.
That effort continues now in Ly’s current stomping grounds with U.K. director Marc Price for the upcoming action thriller, Nightshooters, from which both director and star among others have been slowly rolling out photos teasing the new martial arts pic in wake of its official completion this week. Just as he did on Jailbreak, the rising star also serves as action director along with fight supervisor Donovan Louie, hailing the story of a film crew who find themselves on the run from a criminal gang after witnessing a violent act.
Also starring are Doug Allen, Nicholas Aaron and Adam McNab along with an action team comprised of Kamikaze star and director Marcus Shakesheff, and action performers Hung Dante Dong, Eddie Rafiki Lee, Jon Alagoa, Danny Darwin, Michael Lagin, Tom Cotton, Lucy Jayne Murray, Axel Nu and Karanja Yorke. The film, rolling out this year from U.K.-based Ascendant, is expect to open this summer, so as with photos like the one above, keep an eye out for a fantastic teaser very soon!
