Oh, hell yeah!
Champion Korean Kata, Black Belt Heavyweight fighter, and noted fight choreographer Len Kabasinski is currently in the pre-production stages of his latest writing and directing effort to be shot in Erie, Pennsylvania. (Hey, yinz are making a movie?)
Leo Fong is Zian, a retired Special Forces commander who now runs an auto body shop in the tough inner city (Pittsburgh?!)—a city gripped in fear at the hands of “The Black Roses,” a ruthless gang who makes the rounds and collects “turf money” from local businesses. When Zian refuses to comply with the gang’s demands, they assault his grand-daughter and leave her for dead. When the corrupt cops and in-the-pocket local politicians turn a blind eye to the gang’s increasing power, Zian’s only choice is to call up his old Special Forces team, “The Obliterators,” to serve their own brand of justice.
In addition to Leo Fong and Jon Mikl Thor, the film also stars Sylvester Stallone’s former bodyguard, Mathew Karedas, the star of 1991’s Samurai Cop and 2015’s Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance.
There’s no word yet if Thor is a member of or the leader of the “The Black Roses” or “The Obliterators,” but who cares—it’s a film starring Jon Mikl Thor! We’re just stoked to see him back on the big screen. (And for you B-Movie film buffs: John Fasano, who directed Thor in Zombie Nightmare and Rock ‘n’ Roll Nightmare, also directed one of our favorite heavy-metal horror films: 1988’s Black Roses.)
Dude. This film is making my head spin!
Fong previously starred in Len Kabasinski’s last writing and directing effort, 2018’s Challenge of the Five Gauntlets. You can learn more about where to get the Blu-ray and DVD at the film’s Facebook page. You can now watch it as a free-with-ads stream on Tubi TV.
