Catch The New Teaser Poster For Upcoming Bond Action Short, SAPPHIRE


There aren't a lot of James Bond-inspired fan shorts available online that I know of, and believe me, I'll start looking. However, leave it to filmmaker Colin Emerson to tap into the fanbase now currently writhing in anticipation for the 24th feature film in the franchise, Spectre since its announcement at the top of the year. He's got a new short coming out between now and next week titled Sapphire, and its got the coolest teaser poster in the world right now...so cool I couldn't NOT write about it.


Filmed in one day last month with a zero-budget, Sapphire serves mainly as a conceptual action short, largely inspired by the possibility of casting anyone other than a white guy for the lead, a conversation sparked by Sony when it was finally revealed that actor Idris Elba was once a potential contender for the role. That said, the man you see in the poster, actor, stuntman and fight choreographer, Jean-Paul Ly is certainly gaining some momentum nowadays with credits like Lucy, 24: Live Another Day and Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist and much more, in addition to a few other shortfilms along the way as he readies the launch of his own channel to load good and plenty with action-packed gems to come. So, what better way to continue that rising potential than being an Asian MI-6 agent? Right? No complaints.

Sapphire comes out this week and will also be included on Monday's Hit List. Stay tuned.
