In the not too distant future, the United States economy is in decline and violent crime is spiraling out of control.  In an attempt to regain power over the growing criminal population, a vast network of for-profit, private prisons has opened up.  But rather than solving society’s problems they have created a lawless subculture run by gangs, killers and sociopaths.

Afm 2010: Mma Star Cung Le Takes The Lead In Breaking Point

5 November 2010 6:01 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

[Updating this post with today's news that Phase 4 films have pre-bought all Us rights to the film. It aint made yet but we know who'll be releasing it when it is.]

I declare my bias on this one right up front: Xyz Films - the La company that I'm a partner in - are serving as executive producers on this one and the lead producer - Hawaii International Film Festival programmer Anderson Le - is a long time friend. Do with that what you will. What I do with it is toss it all aside as irrelevant because with the talent attached to this script - which I've read and is fantastic - this is going to be a fantastic film by any measure.

Mma star Cung Le - recently seen on screen fighting Donnie Yen in Hong Kong action drama Bodyguards and Assassins - will take the lead in Journey From The Fall director Ham Tran's English language martial arts film Breaking Point. Producing are Xyz Films, Media 8 Entertainment and Vietnam-based Chanh Phuong Films. For those unfamiliar with the name, »

Mma Fighter Cung Le Joins Wong Kar-Wai's Yip Man Biopic, 'The Grand Master'

Project Won't Finish Shooting At Least Until Early 2011, 'Matrix' Fight Choreographer Yuen Woo-Ping Now Involved Vietnamese-American Mixed Martial Arts fighter Cung Le has evidently joined the cast of Wong Kar Wai's still in production biopic on Bruce Lee mentor Yip Man, "The Grand Master." The fighter has been slowly insinuating himself into the acting world with supporting roles in "Pandorum," "Fighting" and "Tekken," a role lined up in RZA's "The Man With The Iron Fist" and a lead slot in an upcoming Joel Silver production "Dragon Eyes," described as an Mma-tinged "Yojimbo" style pic--as horrible as that sounds.

Cung Le Has Dragon Eyes

24 September 2010 9:50 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Mixed martial arts fighter and burgeoning action movie star (well, sort of) Cung Le is set to anchor the Mma-themed crime drama “Dragon Eyes”. Joel Silver’s Dark Castle and After Dark Films will produce the film, which starts shooting in Baton Rouge next month. Le plays a mysterious man who comes from an impoverished part of New Orleans to unite two warring gangs against the corrupt lawmen who’ve been using them. It’s a modernization of the Kurosawa film “Yojimbo”. Le, the former Strikeforce milddleweight champion, has appeared in a handful of films like “Dark Assassin”, “Fighting”, and “Pandorum”, and will be in the upcoming “Tekken” movie. He has definite potential to become a solid movie tough guy, and he seems to realize that people want to see him fight, not talk, so he generally keeps his mouth shut and sticks to kicking people. Whether or not he »

Film Based on "Tekken" Games Finally Coming to the U.S.

23 September 2010 1:01 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

The "Tekken" games have been coming out for more than 15 years, and the series stands as one of the most popular fighting game franchises ever. They're full of the kind of quintessentially Japanese quirks and cultural references that people think about when they imagine that country's pop culture: Pandas that do kung-fu with glow bracelets on, cyborg ninjas who do a hara-kiri move to stab themselves and the enemies behind them, a brooding young heir to a powerful corporation who also can turn into a demon. That kind of stuff.

There've been animated versions of the "Tekken" saga made in Japan and a Western live-action version has been in the works for nearly a decade. After lots of personnel changes, production wrapped more than a year ago but the film was still angling for a distributor. Anchor Bay--who released last years' "The Slammin' Salmon"--recently announced that they'd picked up the Us distro rights. »

Anchor Bay Picks up Tekken Movie for U.S. Release

14 September 2010 8:46 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Looks like U.S. fans of the “Tekken” game will be able to see Dwight Little’s live-action movie version in theaters after all. Anchor Bay Films has announced that they’ve acquired the film for U.S. theatrical release (set for sometime in 2011), though it’s unclear how wide the film will go before battling its way to VOD and DVD, as is usually the case with these made overseas action movies. For those who can’t wait that long, the film has been out on import DVD since October. You can get it here. Set in a dystopian future where corporations have replaced governments, the fantasy action movie focuses on the Iron Fist Tournament where fighters battle each other to death until only one is standing. A young fighter with a dark secret enters this deadly competition with the aim to avenge his mother’s death and confront his evil dad and grandpa. »

'Tekken' Movie To Be Released And 'Emotional' In 2011

14 September 2010 7:30 AM, PDT | MTV Multiplayer | See recent MTV Multiplayer news »

The Tekken franchise had already hit a milestone by getting adapted to film before Namco Bandai announced a pair of Street Fighter/Tekken games in July. Unfortunately, if you lived outside of Japan you probably didn't get to see the movie. A company called Anchor Bay Entertainment intends to change that, however, for U.S., Australia and New Zealand residents. They're reached a distribution agreement with the movie's makers at Crystal Sky Pictures, and they want it out in 2011.

"The Tekken video game franchise has sold millions of copies over the past decade," Anchor Bay Films president Bill Clark said in a press release. "Crystal Sky has invested millions in the production, making sure they were able to convey not only the incredible fight scenes, but also the emotional journey of the main character, Jin."

So don't leave your humanity at the door, because this film is about more than action and fighting. »

Where to catch the cast this fall

28 August 2010 6:11 PM, PDT | CapricaTV | See recent CapricaTV news »

August 15 has come and gone with no news about the actors' contracts getting picked up for a second season or any word on what Syfy is thinking these days, but with the cast appearing in about a gazillion other things this fall, the hiatus blues should be getting easier.

If you're in New York some time between September and January, you can catch a short film, Untitled, with Eric Stoltz starring, at MoMA (see article.)

No release date has been set yet for his last feature, Fort McCoy (pic left), but IMDb still says 2010, so fingers crossed.

And this is still unconfirmed, but an extras casting director tweeted yesterday that our daddy Graystone will direct one of the new episodes of Glee. If true, the episode should air in the first half of the season. The show returns on Tuesday, Sept. 21 at 8 on Fox.

Alessandra Torresani has been cast in Playback, »

New Tekken Trailer Hits the Web with an Iron Fist!

7 August 2010 3:05 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

A new challenger has entered the arena... As a gamer and lover of all game-based films (even the bad ones), it was no surprise when Crystal Sky Pictures announced they would be handling the live-action treatment of game developer Namco/Bandai’s critically and commercially successful fighting franchise, Tekken.  

With a flowing storyline full of twists and turns at every angle, a cavalcade of deeply written characters, and some of the best martial arts representation in any fighting game, it was only a matter of time before the Iron Fist competitors found themselves on the big screen.

Set in the distant year of 2039, war has ravaged much of the planet.  Corporations have moved in where governments once stood.  Brutal, physical combat is the primary form of entertainment and source of income for many.  For some, though it’s about the glory.  It’s about becoming a legend amongst men.  For the champions, »
