The Asian Cult Cinema Facebook page recently forwarded the latest poster for the upcoming Dante Lam film, MMA. The film was reportedly years in the making for the 47 year old veteran writer, director and filmmaker, whose previous films include Beast Cops, The Twins Effect, Fire Of Conscience and his latest actioner, The Viral Factor, with Nicholas Tse and Jay Chou.
MMA reunites Lam with actor Nick Cheung since working with Tse on their 2010 film, The Stool Pigeon. The film also stars Eddie Peng, (Tai Chi Zero, Cold War) who reportedly endured his own share of injuries throughout the filming process. Bona Film Group is handling domestic distribution for MMA as it nears the end of post-production, according to the latest report City On Fire.
FAI , once a world champion in boxing, escapes to Macau from the loan sharks and unexpectedly encounters QI , a young chap who is determined to win a boxing match. FAI becomes QI's mentor and rediscovers his passion to fight not only in the ring but for his life and the cares.
The film is due out later this year so hopefully we will have more on the cast and crew, and maybe a teaser or a trailer. Stay tuned!
