Botswana had better brace itself, as according to Weekend Post (via The Action Elite), Chuck Norris is heading to town to shoot the new action movie Blood Brothers from director Isaac Florentine (Undisputed II: Last Man Standing, Ninja).
The film is said to revolve around the war between the Botswana Defence Force and poachers and follows two Batswana brothers who “encounter a deadly gang of poachers, which eventually alters the course of their lives forever, leading them back to their roots in the United States, where they are caught up in a political conspiracy.”
76-year-old action icon Norris has only appeared in one movie since 2005, appearing as Booker in 2012’s The Expendables 2, so his inclusion in the cast of Blood Brothers is certainly a surprise, albeit a welcome one. »

Someone has to make them, and here is a list compiling the best of the today’s crop of filmmakers who are unabashed in their love of genres, and have honed their talents producing enjoyable and sometimes great B-Movies. While all the movies they make may not be great, do not dismiss them. The seeds of great things are contained in their filmographies, and it would come as no surprise if one or two of these guys are able to attain the same heights as luminaries like Hill, Carpenter, Craven and Corman.
