You have got to hand it to stuntman turned filmmaker Jesse V. Johnson. Recently completing work on Accident Man, Johnson’s next film will have a dream cast for action fanatics everywhere.
Triple Threat is Johnson’s next film which will begin production in April in Bangkok, Thailand. The film’s titular trio will consist of Thai action star Tony Jaa, Indonesian action hero Iko Uwais, and Man of Tai Chi lead actor Tiger Chen.
In news announced earlier this week, the trio will be joined by action veterans and fan favorites Scott Adkins and Michael Jai White along with former UFC fighter Michael Bisping.
The film will revolve around a billionaire’s daughter who is targeted by a mercenary cartel. As a result, she hires two down-on-their luck fighters and they are joined by a third member who has his own vendetta against the cartel. Elliot Tong, Ying Ye, Mike Selby, Mike Gabrawy, and Gary Hamilton alongside Chen are producing the film from a script by Joey O’Bryan.
Look out for Triple Threat later this year as shooting begins next month.
