We’ve been talking about this project for awhile, so I won’t rehash; feel free to search the blog for previous posts on the film.

Additional casting news surfaced today. First, it was rumored that Russell Crowe had signed on to co-star, although the role he is to play was never revealed. The rumor is now a reality, as a report from FilmBizAsia.com (courtesy of Twitch) confirms Crowe’s casting.

Also, from the same article, I learned that Lucy Liu (what the heck has she been up to) is also in the cast, as are other Asian American actors, namely, Byron Mann (Streetfighter, The Corruptor), Darren Choo (Romeo Must Die), Osric Chau (2012) and others.

Corey Yuen (Transporter 1, 2, 3) is directing the action sequences.

Shooting is scheduled to be over at the end of February, so, I’d expect that we’d see some stills and footage soon enough.
