Here in Hong Kong, news has just surfaced of an upcoming independent film project that immediately caught my eye, not least because it claims to prominently feature legions of ample-chested undead as well as plentiful gore and comedy kung-fu hijinks.
While Zomb'asians: Thongs Of The Dead is still very much in the pre-production phase (no cast members have yet been named), the official website states that the script is finished and they will soon be running camera tests and looking to begin shooting a concept trailer "in the next few days." The film is to be directed by Simon Yin, who has been making quite a name for himself in Hong Kong over the past few years, helming a number of short films, music videos, TV commercials and the like, while friend of the site Mike Leeder is on board as one of the film's producers.

Shahlavi has started to hone his craft and play increasingly larger roles in films and TV, and his hard work is starting to really show. Shahlavi stars in Ip Man 2 (read my review here) as the main bad guy, Twister, who is a Western boxer visiting Hong Kong. After screening the film just moments before, I was able to interview him and you can see the results after the jump.
Darren and I covered a lot of ground, but among the topics were his fighting background, how he got his first big break and then landed »
