It’s time to go “berzerk”.

Malaysian-born taekwondo champion turned action star Hairul Azreen had made waves and gained a massive following his two films Paskal and Wira. Azreen has signed a deal to take the lead in Ranjeet S. Marwa‘s upcoming action thriller Berzerker.

Filming is set to begin in July in the UK. Azreen will play Noble, an ex-con who now walks as a free man, seeking revenge on those responsible for his incarceration. Marwa will be directing from a script he co-wrote with Daniel White with Djonny Chen producing alongside Marwa.

Azreen had this to say about his excitement about the film:
“I look forward to joining the Berzerker team in the UK. The story is great, the locations are great and director Ranjeet and I have been wanting to work together for a while. The opportunity arose with this project and thanks to Ranjeet and the producers that we can now officially begin production soon”

Director Marwa had this to say about getting the chance to work with Azreen:
“I’ve been a fan of Hairul for quite some time. The opportunity never came for us to work together because of our busy schedules. However, I pushed and made sure that the next project was with Hairul and that we’d make something special together”

Berzeker is scheduled to be coming out sometime in 2022.
