The countdown begins as we approach a September release of Angga D. Sasongko’s latest, Wiro Sableng, taken from the pages of the long celebrated action adventure novel saga from author Bastian Tito whose son, actor Vino G. Bastian, now stakes his claim in the title role.
The story itself is set in the 16th century and centured on an axe-wielding hero of legend who accrues a number of skills on his adventures. Plot details are unclear as to which areas of the novels are the film’s focus, but we’ve since garnered a teaser as of December and in kind, our first volley of poster art is now making the rounds from Lifelike Pictures and 20th Century Fox.
Bastian leads the trio of ink below in addition to actress Sherina Munaf and actor Fariz Alfarazi. Rounding out the cast are Marsha Timothy, Lukman Sardi, Rifnu Wikana, Dwi Sasono, Marcella Zalianty, Marcell Siahaan, Happy Salma, Yayan Ruhian, Ruth Marini, Yayu Unru and action fan favorite Cecep Arief Rahman with Dian Sidik, Yusuf Mahardika, and Aghniny Haque also starring.
