Bruce Fontaine is an independent filmmaker who is gearing up his latest action thriller, Beyond Redemption. Fontaine got his start in the film industry playing villains and supporting roles in 1980’s to 1990’s Hong Kong action films. He has worked with Jackie Chan, Frankie Chan, Billy Blanks, and Lau Kar-Leung. Returning to his native Canada, Bruce would work as a stunt coordinator, fight choreographer, and even trained stars such as Frankie Muniz for the Agent Cody Banks series with his extensive background in the martial arts of wushu and Choy Lee Fut.

With Beyond Redemption, Fontaine is looking to bring the heart of Asian action to his native Canada by having a virtual all-Asian cast including Brian Ho, Osric Chau, Linna Nuyhn, Tony Towe, Don Lew, Vicky Huang, Darren E. Scott, Samuel Patrick Chu, Peter Chao, The Chengman, Leenda Dong, and Eddy Ko, best known for his role of “Hong” in Lethal Weapon 4. In addition, Fontaine brings his years of experience in Hong Kong action cinema to make his directorial debut.

After successfully passing an initiation test to join the upper ranks of the Ching Tau Gang, undercover cop Billy Tong is brought in on a plan for a home invasion against a wealthy Chinese businessman that will give Billy the evidence he needs to bring down the gang and its ruthless leader, Big Brother Yuan. As plans are proceeding, Billy learns that his ex-wife is pregnant and begins questioning his career choices. Although Billy realizes the need to put things right and prepare for his new family, his checkered past as a police officer complicates his decision to simply be reassigned. Things become complicated when he is forced to protect the daughter of a rival gang leader’s daughter when he learns both sides are planning to strike an important deal.

  1. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
