U.K. people and others around the globe. You need to stay home and stop putting other people at risk by going out and spreading this horrible and sometimes deadly disease! Excuse the language but I got worked up. This is serious though!!
“Look after each other. Check on your elderly neighbours and see if you can help them in these difficult times. We WILL get through this together.
Respect to health care professionals around the world. These are the true heroes of these strange and difficult times.”
Scott had to go on hiatus from filming Castle Falls with Dolph Lundgren and Timman while shooting in Alabama in the States. This was one of the least affected states as of a couple weeks ago but this thing has escalated very quickly, Scott mentioned on his social media account.
One key ingredient when pitching projects at any film market usually includes some kind of concept art. Bleiberg Entertainment is in Berlin with their own package which also consists of William Kaufman’s latest, Vigilante, which wrangled through a ton of unease earlier this month when fan sites spilled the beans.
Scott Adkins (Universal Soldier: Day Of Reckoning, Undisputed film series) is set to star in the flick rejoining Kaufman long since 2016’s Jarhead: The Siege, and Daylight’s End screenwriter Chad Law. With Vigilante making the rounds at this year’s EFM, there’s no question with the sales art’s blaring similarities to the pre-sales art for Jesse Johnson’s hit 2019 thriller, Avengement.
Vigilante is described as Taxi Driver meets The Punisher, Adkins will play a disgraced soldier who wages war against the city’s most dangerous criminals, only to end up endangering the lives of the very same people he initially set out to help protect. “This is an old-school unapologetically brutal, testosterone-fueled thrill ride.” Kaufman tells FCSyndicate. “This film will definitely be one of my very best. It’s 100% Scott and I doing our thing.
Below is the first concept art. We recognize Scott’s photo as an image from Universal Soldier, Day of Reckoning.
The rumors were already circulating on the internet, but now it is confirmed on the facebook page of scott adkins. He will be working on a new film, together with Dolph Lundgren, called ‘Castle Falls’. This will be the fourth collaboration of both men.
The film, set to go into production mid-March in Alabama, sees Adkins play Mike, a struggling fighter forced to take on a foreman job at a local condominium that is set to be demolished. With just eight hours before the building, strapped with dynamite, is destroyed, two vicious local gangs, one led by Lundgren’s character, Shea, break in to retrieve millions of dollars stowed away in one of the apartments. When Mike stumbles across the money, a game of cat and mouse ensues.
“Right time, right place? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been in the wrong place at the wrong time! I don’t know about that. It’s about determination. It’s about being ready for whatever arises. You gotta knock down that door. No one is going to give it to you. You have to go out there and you have to take it. That’s what most people don’t realize. They think someone is going to give them these opportunities. No one is going to give you nothing. If anything, they’re going to try to keep you out. You have to take it!”
In an interview with ‘The Hollywood News’ Scott was asked about the problems that the world is still facing with racism and inequality.
Adkins: Honestly, I don’t care about all this politically correct nonsense. It does my head in! I think its a bit out of control and it’s gone too far. I like my characters to be a bit complex and say what they want to say. Look at ‘Accident Man’, where we got into trouble for not being ‘politically correct’. Nobody is trying to upset anyone. We’re just trying to entertain people. I feel like people are scared to say things now. Comedians who are being told off for the things they’re saying, and it’s just silly.
