Robert Patrick Will Fight a Mongolian Army in His New Film Project The Rising Hawk

Robert Patrick is set to star in a crazy-sounding new film project called The Rising Hawk. This sounds like a fascinating project for Patrick and it's very different from anything that he's done before. 

The story is set in 1241 Ad, and it "follows a rebellious Ukrainian villager who, after losing his mother in a vicious attack by the relentless Mongols, must join his father (Patrick) to unite 500 of their fellow villagers and fight against a 10,000-strong Mongolian Army."

That sounds like it has the makings of an epic film. It will be directed by Akhten Seitablaev and John Wynn from a script written by Yaroslav Voitseshek and Richard Ronat. The plan is to shoot the film in Ukraine later this year. 

Patrick currently stars in the CBS series Scorpion and it's always great to see him land a good movie gig like this!
